  • The Poor Outlaws/The Round-Up

    1966. Hungary. Directed by Miklós Jancsó. With János Görbe, Zoltán Latinovits, Tibor Molnár. The minimalist visual composition of The Poor Outlaws, in which a group of failed revolutionaries in nineteenth-century Hungary are herded together under punishing circumstances amid a barren landscape, delineates the marked similarities between Jancsó’s style and that of Béla Tarr. Highly abstract, extended shots and a camera that is almost constantly moving create an atmosphere of isolation and hopelessness. Jancsó’s landmark film is presented in a newly restored print courtesy of the Hungarian Film Archive. In Hungarian; English subtitles. 90 min.
