What did the poor devil think?”

i want to know what it’s like to have béla tarrs brain for just one hour. it must be like achieving artistic nirvana and having a deep love/hate for friedrich nietzsche. undeniable to me that this is one of the greatest cinematic landmarks ever made, composed like he directed earth itself to do his bidding in a tragedy (tragicomedy?) about how humans can get other humans to do their bidding. plodding and plodding and plodding along.
