Shoah (1985) is over 500 minutes long (other versions running either 540 or 565) but there's not one of those minutes that drag. Completely captivating to say the least all the way through.
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Jun 7 6:49
"Myriam", I don't count extended editions. Thanks for the support all of you :)
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Jun 7 17:56

Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Jun 7 23:36
True that.
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Jun 7 23:48
Does Che not count because it's in two parts? They were still released as one, in theatres.
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Jun 8 5:01
How long was 'Amadeus'? That movie seemed like it went well over; but I may have watched the director's cut.
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Jun 10 16:47
You could list 'Das Boot', which is 229 minutes (3 h 49 min) long.

Is that some sort of a joke?
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Aug 24 22:17
I checked out the "Che" two part film, and decided not to add it.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Sep 6 10:27
Its not a joke. It was actually filmed as a movie. But they (the producer-director) promoted it in a TV serial.
But it's a film.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Sep 6 10:31
and what about Andrei Rublev ? ?
165 mins original cut
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Sep 7 1:09
A.) I checked out that title over on IMDb, and no sign.

B.) 165 minutes totals 2 hours and 45 minutes, just missing the 3 hour mark.
Posted: 5 years ago at Nov 15 9:39
The mark of a truly good, well-made film is that it is so engaging and so entertaining that you don't realize that 3 hours has gone by. In some cases, you even wish it could go on longer. I think the 3-4 hour mark is where I draw the line. I can't see watching a movie for 6+ hours.

I saw some movies in the list that I have watched and enjoyed, but had no idea they were 3+ hours long.
Posted: 5 years ago at Nov 15 22:30
I completely agree "blankend". I've only come across a few films so engaging in which I feel that way about. Also, 6 hours is pushing it a wee bit. Maybe if it was cut up into two halves or something, it would be easier to maintain.

Yeah, a lot of movies out there are shocking revelations once you realize their length.

Riget by Von Tries is considered a movie and it's 4 hours long.
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at May 3 17:22
I can't seem to find 'Riget' at the moment. Is it here on Listal?
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at May 3 17:41
"Riget" is a mini-series, which make it go under Tv-Show...

Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at May 3 17:45
Ah, thanks Kris, though since it isn't technically a movie, I cannot include it here.
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at May 4 0:08
what about kill bill 1 and 2? It was originally supposed to be one movie but the studio decided to cut it in half. and do it in two parts.
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at May 4 3:44
Yes, but they are still two different films.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Aug 25 6:14
please include all movies that run 3 hours with or without an extended version

HOLY BLADDER-BUSTER BATMAN! 9 hours? Damn, I really wanna see "Shoah", and perhaps I'm different from everyone else that I actually prefer a long movie to a short one. But I'm just not sure I can clear my schedule out enough for such an 'epic' duration?!!...
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Jan 15 4:09
Andrei Rublev - 205 mins I think.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Jan 15 7:13
Aldenvdk: Just added it. At the time, about a year ago, I thought it was just short of the 3 hour mark.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Jan 15 8:05
You're missing the Human Condition movies. The first was 3:26 (including intermission) and the third was 3:10.
