Indian filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s masterpiece is another four-hour-plus monster that, like Lang’s film, was split into two films for meek distributors intimidated by its length. A sprawling, delirious, decades-spanning crime epic covering the rises and falls of three crime families fighting over, essentially, coal fortunes. Shot in Varanasi, Bihar, and Chunar, the picture is alive with regional specificities of dialect, music, and interpersonal politics. At once universal and specific, then, Kashyap makes a film to rival Hong Kong’s Infernal Affairs and The Conformist.
