“At seven hours, SÁTÁNTANGÓ is one of those unusual works of contemporary art that demand from the audience a concentrated commitment — the luxury of time.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“The marathon SÁTÁNTANGÓ is a magnum opus to end all magna opera, a dark, funny, apocalyptic allegory of the Hungarian psyche that stimulates, irritates, soothes and startles with blinding strokes of genius in equal turn.” – Derek Elley, Variety
