Bela Tarr's masterpiece. The action of the film centres around its protagonist, Karrer, and his infatuation with a singer at his local bar. Damnation is the most formalistic of his films, relying on its rich mise en scene to relay the directors message rather than through plot or its characters. Often compared to Tarkovsky, Tarr's meditative attitude to film is as seductive as it is difficult to explain. In a word, Metaphysitastic!
