... a film of primal imagery, poetic filmmaking, and ephemeral storytelling that looks hewn out of the stone and wood and the very earth of the ground beneath it.
May 22, 2014
By now, this burly, seething musk ox of a movie, arguably the most convincing film about the Middle Ages ever made, should be on everyone's tongue.

In less than a minute, before the film's opening titles even conclude, Marketa Lazarová has announced itself as something potentially unique, perhaps indefinable.

Vlacil's historical epic is a sensory overload... but I am certain of one thing. I have just seen a masterpiece.

A wide-screen black-and-white feast for the eyes.

Sound in general is one of the film's most distinctive features: every word, every movement whips back at you in a dry, staccato echo.
June 17, 2013
Episodic in structure, the film proceeds like a folk saga, but its flashbacks, flash-forwards, and abrupt cuts give it a hallucinatory quality.

Director Vlacil does not try to romanticize medieval knighthood but creates an atmosphere of mysticism and superstition, with excellent results.

It's stark, daring and often astoundingly dynamic.
