Béla Tarr's over 7-hour film is one of the longest movies in the world. The Hungarian director's work is based on the novel by László Krasznahorkai. Karri and Henrik are investigating the footsteps of Chinese director Hu Bo's "godfather". Why is the film so long and is the length justified? Is it one of the greatest films ever seen? Is the film seen merely as a challenge not so much for its artistic merits but for its runtime? 

Hosted by Karri Ojala and Henrik Telkki. Edited by Karri Ojala. The Flick Lab theme tune written and performed by Nick Grivell.
