The Conversation: Andrew Russell: Slow cinema

I’m not sure I agree with Mr Russell that “people are searching for ways to escape the fast pace of the modern world” and choosing slow cinema as a way to achieve this. Slow cinema is all about tension and release. Filmmakers build tension by making the audience wait. I suspect its popularity these days may have more to do with peoples habit of bingeing through ten hours of serialised drama. Audiences have more tolerance than ever for stories building over time.
