Romanian new wave director Cristi Puiu (The Death of Mr. Lazarescu) crafts a plus-size murder mystery. Puiu himself plays the coldly vengeful man at the center of a deadly crime in the making. Rather than speculate on the "How?" of the deed, Puiu focuses intently on the "Why?" The premeditation here is meticulous--even the murder weapon comes together piece by excruciating piece. It's slow-going; but like his previous film, patience is rewarded. In Romanian with English subtitles. 181 minutes
