Cannes 2016: 'Sieranevada' Review

One of the more praised films thus far in the Competition here at Cannes is Sieranevada, the latest from Death of Mr. Lazarescu writer-director Cristi Puiu. This is a three-hour drama about a group of family members gathered to mourn the passing of their patriarch. A tale of fury and lingering resentment, Sieranevada takes some getting used to, as I explain in my Paste review.
