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.

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.
