    The best possible review! There are arthouse fans lurking around this site, who are well aware of this masterpiece. However, the uninitiated should, to quote Anthony Lane's review in The New Yorker three weeks ago: "gird their loins, down a Stoli for luck, and give “Andrei Rublev” a chance. You may dread being ground down by this extraordinary film, but fear not. It will bear you aloft."

    Amazon.com is listing the Blu-ray with a runtime of 185 minutes, not the original 205 minute version that is mentioned in the review.:unsure:

    They're listing the runtime for the director's preferred version that's on the first disc of the Blu-ray; the original 205 minute cut is on the second disc.
