Description: Sátántangó (English: Satan's Tango) is a film directed by Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr. Shot in black-and-white, completed in 1994, it runs an epic 7 hours and 12 minutes.

"Incredible imagery... and incredibly long. Unless they love it so much you stop to make out in the middle of it and schedule a second date to finish... uhhh, that's not going to happen, sorry."

"18.4-20.4 Kirjastolainat saivat nyt jäädä muutamaksi päiväksi niille sijoilleen, sillä tämä Béla Tarrin yli seitsemän tuntia kestävä eepos sai vihdoin ja viimein aikaa parrasvaloissa. Pitkään tämä oli elokuva jota kartoin, mutta en samoista syistä mitä oikeasti huonoja tai kyseenalaisen maineen omaavia elokuvia. En vain vuosia kokenut olevani henkisesti valmis tähän taidepaukkuun.
