I have a large gap in classic movies that I haven’t seen and Shoah is a part of that list. So when I found out that the Criterion Collection was releasing the film on Blu-Ray, I was pretty ecstatic. But one thing that kept me from buying the film (besides the $90 price tag) is that the documentary spans past nine hours long. I was a little worried how I would be able to watch the film, especially since I dislike having to watch a movie over the course of two or more days.
This inspired today’s question: what do you do for long movies? I never try to avoid long films, and when a movie is engaging the time span can fly by. However, I always find difficulty having time to see them. I recently purchased a copy of Once Upon A Time In America, a movie I’ve wanted to see for quite a while but unfortunately never have the time to do so (it is almost four hours long).
But what do you do?
