Perhaps Nemes was hoping to let the precision of his intricately staged images artfully clash with the absurdity of a chaotic plot. But the result is more tedious than tense.

Oblique, often beguiling, and portentously cryptic, the film offers no satisfying solution.

If Sunset doesn't hit with nearly the impact that Son of Saul does, this look back at the chaos before the storm establishes Nemes as a major voice.

Nemes adds distinctive but superfluous flourishes to this meticulous, overcalculated historical drama.

Nemes' suggestive, impressionistic approach takes some getting used to, but Sunset is worth the extra effort.

Nemes can be relentlessly opaque, which at time makes the film a drag to follow. But there's method in his determination to leave us with nowhere to park our own affinities.

Lázló Nemes's mastery of making a particular story a global recount is evident in Sunset. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a film that plods along, with the audience definitely feeling the weight of its 144 minute run time... This is a film where the more complex and entangled the mystery in the plot becomes, the less engaging it is.
