    I don't know if it is the worst movie of all time but this is the worst song of all time.

    I have nothing against foreign films, I cried like a little b*tch during Pan's Labyrinth and The Intouchables. Life is Beautiful and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly are also good ones.

    The reason it got a 7.5 and I bag on this movie is because of the pretentious suckers that buy into that this piece of crap is art. I could take a dump and submit to an art gallery and there will be one troll that proclaims "it's a masterpiece!" and then soon enough people will follow and "see it."

    The Turin Horse is a gimmick, the purpose of the movie is to test one's patience. The movie "wants" to show the hardship of every day life and is directed in the most tedious way possible...which translates to a movie about nothing...which means there are literally 10 minute scenes with no cuts on people farming, changing their lamps, eating supper with no dialogue. It came out in 2011 and it's filmed in black and white...like I said, a gimmick, one that said pretentious suckers actually bought into, because they feel like "hey, this tedious movie's purpose was to test my patience and I actually sat through the whole thing, that means I'm more sophisticated than people that couldn't finish it. I 'got it' and they didn't, I'm so proud of myself."

    The opening scene pretty much sums up the movie. Just a series of 30 clips of some old Hungarian guy whipping a horse.

    Obviously no one here watches arthouse cinema. That's cool, though. Different strokes for different folks. From a cinematography standpoint, Bela Tarr is hands down one of the best. I think you all can recognize that, at least.

    I did like The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. Though that movie is more than just Art House a big part of the reason I liked it is the cinematography.
