Long Take Dronescape Hypnocinema

Lush moving pictures composed of frigid long takes, preferably coupled with dissonant synths or droning diegetic sound, sustain a personal aesthetic high powerful enough to create a trance like atmosphere. Scant dialogue and tight framing maximize visual impact. Patron saints: Tsai Ming-liang, Chantal Akerman, Kubrick (and good clones), Tarkovsky, slow nü art horror, Jean Rollin, and Krautrockers turned composers. NEED MORE OF THESE MOVIES IN MY LIFE, PLEASE.
