Abstract

wo major studies of Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr have been published in English recently, and both are impressively comprehensive, so rather than repeating their work I will take a more focused approach here by working through the key film in Tarr’s œuvre, Damnation. Central to my reading is the relation between the aesthetics and the narrative of the film, which, although resembling Rancière’s model of antagonistic regimes, is rendered more subtle and enigmatic by the ambivalence of the work, an ambivalence that becomes tangible when considered in terms of Adorno’s understanding of the relation between the auditory and visual aspects of film.
