|The Fast Runner (Atanarjuat), [an] epic account of an 11th-century Inuit blood feud, shot on digital video in northernmost Canada a hundred miles or more above the Arctic Circle, is spectacularly beautiful, not to mention mysterious, sensual, emotionally intense... Some three years in the making and nearly three hours long, [the film]...is totally absorbing from first image to last." --J. Hoberman, Village Voice
I saw the film today and agree with Jim Hoberman's review--it's fantastic! I recommend seeing it at Landmark's Sunshine Cinema on Houston; it's a nice comfortable theater with stadium seating.
Finally another alternative to Nanuk Of The North. It's been awhille
yeah, i saw the trailer a few weeks ago - looks amazing, mike and i have been meaning to go see it. also we went to the sunshine cinema recently - my new favorite theater (except no one has better popcorn than film forum).
