    I think we are always iffy about movies with more than 3 hours of runtime, sometimes they pay off and you barely feel the time passing (Schindler’s List is a good example), sometimes you feel every single second passing by.

    However I’d like to know about really long films you’ve watched (+4 hours, preferentially) and if it was worth it watching it, you had to pause it or do you think it could’ve been much shorter.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Probably the 1996 Hamlet which is a little more than 4 hours. It was worth every minute… what a spectacular production.

    This is cheating since it’s a play (and technically two plays at that), but Angels in America was somewhere between seven and eight hours long, and utterly enthralling.

    Wow. I didn’t even realize Schindler’s List was that long, and I watched it a while back. Dang.

    I watched Lagaan, which was 3 hours and 45 minutes long. It got kinda boring but still, thankful for the musical scenes.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Have anyone here watched Little Dorrit (1988). This film was nominated for two Oscars: Adapted Screenplay and Supporting Actor and has a total of 6 hours of runtime. I would like to know if it’s worth the watch.

    Does La Flor count? That was incredibly long (13,5h I think) and me and a friend decided to watch it in one day and not in three as it was intended. That nearly broke me

    So many good ones:

    The Lord Of The Rings trilogy
    Schindler’s List
    Ben-Hur (the 1959 version)
    Lawrence Of Arabia
    Doctor Zhivago
    The Irishman

    The only 3 hour film I remember really not liking is JFK. Great actors and great production value, but all a bunch of historical nonsense. Walter Cronkite was deeply insulted by the film, and I don’t blame him. The man literally had to announce Kennedy’s death to the nation.

    I watched Love Exposure which is a Japanese movie. It’s kinda crazy but I’d honestly recommend it. Great IMDB and RT scores for the skeptics. Yes you gotta read subtitles for 4 hours but it’s worth it.

    Emmy FYC:

    Limited Series Lead Actor: Oscar Isaac (Scenes from a Marriage)
    Limited Series Lead Actress: Jessica Chastain (Scenes from a Marriage)

    Maid in all categories (Especially Margaret Qualley)
    The Great in all categories (Especially Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Writing)
    Better Call Saul in all categories

    I also forgot to mention The Deer Hunter. I think that movie’s good, but not great. The first hour drags on way too long, mainly because of the wedding. Then, once De Niro, Walken, and the others actually go to Vietnam, then it becomes interesting.
