TV Guide's Movie Guide

If this truly is Bela Tarr's final film, there's no arguing he bows out with something extraordinary that no other director could have imagined.

An intentionally monotonous look at the lives of a farmer and his daughter. Strange events signal the end is nigh, but it approaches at the pace of a lethargic inchworm.

Antagony & Ecstasy

One of the finest and most sublimely harrowing depictions of the End Times that I have ever seen in a movie.

Mihály Vig's dirge-like soundtrack underscores the eloquent futility, which makes Bresson's Balthazar seem Disney-like.

Tarr says this is his last movie. And it feels like it. After you've ended the entire world, not with a giant planet collision like Lars Von Trier did in Melancholia but by simply shooting out the lights, what else is there?

Starkly beautiful and exceedingly demanding, "The Turin Horse," which Hungarian master Béla Tarr has said will be his last film, is both easy and impossible to define.

The film is stunningly shot by Fred Kelemen, whose camera snakes around the one room interior of the humble home of 58 year-old cab driver Ohlsdorfer (János Derzsi, with a face Albrecht Dürer would have loved) and his daughter...

Hungary's Oscar entry for Best Foreign Film, Béla Tarr's final work is a masterwork. Although a masterwork beyond most viewers' appreciation.

It's a visually arresting and original work that Tarr's small legion of fans will likely enjoy.

Displays Mr. Tarr's uncompromising, atavistic commitment to darkness, difficulty and lapidary pictorial sublimity.

The Turin Horse is an absolute vision, masterly and enveloping in a way that less personal, more conventional movies are not. The film doesn't seduce; it commands.

If ... one has a need to cleanse their palate of even indie fare that seems familiar and cookie-cutter, this immersive, contemplative, black-and-white film may, in its way, be invigorating.

Alas, there's some risibly bad stuff here, too -- mainly contentwise -- that even Tarr's passionate fans will balk at.

Tarr, who is only 56, claims The Turin Horse as his last film, and it's hard to imagine a follow-up.

Hungarian auteur Bela Tarr's final work, an historical tale that's both particular and universal, bears his unmistakable aesthetic signature.
