The Hungarian's attempts to continue his journey homeward provide the framework for this powerful and deeply personal masterpiece from one of cinema's most acclaimed filmmakers. TheRound-Up (Szegénylegények) (1965) On many writers, critics and filmmakers Best Film lists, and widely acknowledged as Jancsó's supreme masterpiece, The Round-Up is set in a detention camp, at a time of guerrilla campaigns against the ruling Austrians in 1869. Jancsó avoids conventional heroics to focus on the persecution and dehumanization manifest in a time of conflict and creates a terrifying picture of war that continues to resonate today. The Red and the White (Csillagosok, katonák) (1967) Set in 1919 during the brutal Civil War which raged in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, this is a war film unlike any other. Hungarian volunteers supporting the 'Red' revolutionaries fight a war of attrition against the 'White' counter-revolutionaries who are seeking to restore the old Czarist order. Virtuoso in style and technique, Jancsó invites us to study the mechanisms of conflict and power to produce a unique film portrait of the utter futility of war.
