Dealer is on target when it comes to the actors and their expressing of talent, quite good however the story while not far off from what can happen shows suomeone in over their head and most likely with the lack of skills he shows while doing business is depressing. While having a suspect girlfriend around he repeatedly hides drugs and money not learning from experience this is a terrible idea, a weak plot device and unrealistic. The taking of life may be real these days, the news reflects this even though I've seen far less violence during years of my dealing, lost money is only compounded with more trouble dishing out beatings much less killing. A smart dealer does not "front" what he cannot afford to lose...

I would have loved this one if they hadn't shown it in slow motion.

Seriously, this one is unnecessarily lethargic. That said, it's also a beautiful film. You decide.

Fliegauf's camera hardly ever stays still. Comparisons to his fellow countrymen, Jancso and Tarr, undoubtedly come from his impressive and very clever use of long-shots, gliding the camera around with the intent of, on the one hand, allowing the viewer to see literally everything -- things even the characters can hardly take in -- and, on the other hand, the intention of isolating the viewer despite following Brechtian aesthetics. This is a brilliant film and Fliegauf shows such a great deal of promise, vision, scope, technical skill, and a fresh aesthetic, not to mention his keen analysis of Hungary's social and cultural issues as they contribute to an almost existential erasure of individuals' subjectivities. In my opinion, I personally find Fliegauf's use of tracking shots to be more in line with Jansco's than Tarr's, although he is obviously influenced by both directors' works while pursuing an aesthetic all his own. In many ways, this aesthetic is similar -- in terms of colored filters, chiaroscuro, the use of long-shots over close-ups, not to mention shadowing and an interest in dull hues -- to many young continental European and eastern European directors working now: Sorrentino, Andersson, Ceylan, and Zvyaginstev, to mention several. Fliegauf's always-active camera, however, is much more disorienting than these other directors' films, despite narrative and cultural differences and thematic treatments, and carries Jansco's and Tarr's brilliance into a new generation of cinema with a unique vision that promises many more masterpieces to come.

This movie is guaranteed to be horrible so here is some Billy Squire for your amusement:

"Now everybody, have you heard
If you're in the game, then the stroke's the word
Don't take no rhythm, don't take no style
Got a thirst for killin' - grab your vial... "

First person to name that song will get an invisible bowl of rice.

Anyone who's keen one Bela Tarr will find this movie amazing. It won several prizes. You can find one scene on youtube (which I think is hard to understand without the whole movie).
