Intimate Epics

Series Site

Some stories are so sweeping and some visions so monumental, they can’t be contained to a mere 90-minute or two-hour running time. Each one an achievement of towering proportions, the films collected here may be sprawling in ambition, but they are rich and resonant in their observation and human insight. From a rousing samurai classic to a mesmerizing feminist landmark to a 21st century Chinese odyssey and beyond, these mighty masterpieces, all over the three-hour mark, offer experiences to truly lose yourself in.
