Some stories are so sweeping and some visions so monumental, they can’t be contained to a mere 90-minute or two-hour running time. Each one an achievement of towering proportions, the films collected here may be sprawling in ambition, but they are rich and resonant in their observation and human insight. While the summer sun is high, join us in the AC and in front of the big screen for cinematic masterpieces from around the globe—all over the three-hour mark—that offer experiences to truly lose yourself in.
