Audience Reviews for Melancholia


at 7.5 hours, this is a tough watch and took me 4-5 days. the mood of constant sorrow, reinforced with shadows and rain became like a cloud enveloping me. i did some background reading on political situation in philippines to help process this too. a unique immersive experience. maybe now i'm ready for 'satantango'!
