Movie #1873: D'Est (1993, Chantal Akerman)

A movie composed almost entirely of tedium. Akerman films eastern Europe and her favourite place to film is the bus stop/bus station/train station. It's 100 minutes of film showing people waiting and 10 minutes of other stuff. Reviews state how wonderfully Akerman has captured the mood of eastern Europe. Poppycock! Make a film in North America and limit yourself to bus stops and bus stations (a train station would be just too hard to find) and I guarantee a snooze fest!
