The longest film in the world lasts 35 days and 17 hours
The old adage “you have all the time in the world” certainly applies to the “longest in the world” movie.
Title Logisticsthe 2012 Swedish film has been called an “experimental film”, written and created by Erika Magnusson and Daniel Andersson.
The inspiration behind the film came in 2008, where the two writers wanted to look into the origin of modern electronic gadgets.
According to IMDb, the synopsis reads: “The production cycle of a pedometer in reverse chronological order.”
The shoot follows the manufacturing journey of the product from the store in Stockholm where it was purchased to the factory in China where it was made.
But to watch the movie you will need a mega 51,420 minutes to cross it. Yes, you heard right.
The movie, sort of, is 35 days and 17 hours long, which is longer than my annual vacation allowance combined.
At 857 hours, it is the longest film ever made.
And if that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, those who have watched the film seem to disagree because, even more amazingly, the film has been rated a solid 6.2/10 on IMDb.
Although the rating is only based on 115 votes, that’s not bad at all.
However, the “best review” posted on the website gave the film a 5/10 and called it “the most confusing 35 days and 17 hours of my life”.
They wrote: “When I heard about the movie called ‘Logistics’, I was immediately interested in the plot of ‘The Production Cycle of a Pedometer’. It’s just such a great idea.
“HOWEVER, once I started playing, much to my dismay, I was shocked. Did I make a mistake? Everything was upside down.”
Well, in terms of the movies you would actually watch, there are quite a few classics that are longer than three hours, which many would consider to be quite “long” lengths.
the wolf of Wall Streetbased on the near-true story of Wall-Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) arrives at three.
“the wolf of Wall Street is a beautiful dark comedy: fast, funny and remarkably grimy,” wrote The Atlantic.
As Insider’s Kirsten Acuna wrote: ‘End of Game is an emotional punch right in the gut”, and “a very satisfying conclusion to this adventure which began in 2008 with Tony Stark”.
In what many consider one of the most iconic films of all time, Ben Hurfeaturing the iconic Charlton Heston, runs for three hours 32 minutes.
The Telegraph wrote: “The story of how one man confronts the tyranny of the Romans, with all sorts of horrific consequences for himself and his family, is powerful and gripping.”
