Raskolnikov goes to the Philippines in NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY, which takes Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” as a springboard for Lav Diaz’s musings on guilt, will and modern Filipino history. Among adepts of so-called “slow cinema”, writer-director Diaz is reputed as a marathon champ, his films sometimes exceeding the eight-hour mark. By comparison, the four-hour NORTE is a miniature, but it’s also an accessible film, a superb piece of focused narrative that’s more immediately coherent than such digressive pieces as MELANCHOLIA. (...) Diaz has a reputation as a hard director, but NORTE has grace, humanity and narrative verve aplenty, along with intellectual clout. (Jonathan Romney)
