Aurora ~ Romania, 2010 ~ Netflix

Cristi Puiu stars in and directs this dark slice of Romanian disaffection. Be aware that this film is a shade over 3-hours long (I was not). Plan accordingly. It’s that long because it’s “real time”, meaning as we follow the troubled lead character we see him lurking in and out of the shadows, waiting for his victims.

Initially, we don’t even know what the hell is going on, until our man Viorel unpacks a hunting rifle. Then the stalking begins, although it’s not until the end that we find out what his beef is. If you bore easily, stay away. As a different vision of filmmaking style, you may want to at least check it out.
