Quite honestly gobsmacked by this, I mean I know it's Lang and you expect quality but this really did hit me hard.
What an achievement, the scope and ambition, the cinematography, composition, story-telling and spacial awareness. Lang creates fully realised worlds full of heroism, fantasy, revenge and wrath - I loved every minute of this, bring on the second part.
Times are incorrect, more like 141 for Siegfried and 144 for Revenge (second part of saga) for a total of nearly 5 hours.
The link has the correct length.
So far ahead of its time. Staggeringly ambitious and flawlessly executed. Three cheers for Lang.
Get the Masters of Cinema BD and experience it the best way possible.
