Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles ★★★★

I could probably never watch this movie while not doing anything else, but it achieves its filmic agenda brilliantly. This is long and repetitive and if I wasn’t doing other stuff while I watched it boring, but that puts you firmly into the mood of the main character. You meander through mundanity for a couple of hours until the climax and while slow it is very effective. Also there’s a lot of fucking long takes and that is something I will always appreciate
