Long Twilight

Respectable more than interesting, this adaptation of Shirley Jackson's “The Bus” depicts the nightmarish journey of an aging archaeologist. After leaving a site where she's been both honored and humiliated, she's unable to get home, seeming doomed to revisit—or hallucinate revisiting—landmarks from her past. Menacing male figures she encounters treat her disparagingly, implying that as she's lost her youthful femininity she's also lost something of her humanity. Seamlessly structured and markedly atmospheric, this 1997 movie is a pretentious yet impressive technical exercise. The cinematography is by Gabor Medvigy (Satantango); Attila Janisch directed. With Mari Torocsik.
