Movies: They’re too friggin’ long these days. Whether it’s a new blockbuster film in theatres demanding two and a half hours or more of your time, or a new streaming prestige piece from a notable auteur that reaches peaks of four hours, every contemporary filmmaker seems to have agreed that longer is better. How and why did this trend happen? Why do directors wish to test our patience — and bladders — so intensely? What happened to the particular pleasures of a tightly-paced film that gets in, says what it needs to say, and gets out? Who has the time to watch these long-ass movies all day?
