"Jancsó occupies a unique place in Hungarian culture. If he hadn't made such films as The Round-Up, My Way Home, The Red and the White, and others, there would have been a void. Just like Bartók in music and Attila József in poetry, Jancsó expressed the spirit of his nation and its historical destiny in cinema" István Szabó
"People need to see Jancsó's really beautiful three or four first movies" Béla Tarr
My Way Home:
“A rare, moving film for everyone” Total Film
"One of the most moving and clear-sighted analyses of male sensibilities and friendship in all cinema" Tony Rayns, Time Out
Selected as one of Sight & Sound's 'Best 365 Films of All Time'
“No one has tried quite the same thing in the same way, and that is Jancsó’s most formidable legacy”
Derek Malcolm's 100 Greatest Movies
“...a sublime, provocative, and haunting examination of moral bankruptcy and human cruelty” Strictly Film School
The Red and the White:
“If you've never encountered Jancsó’s work, you shouldn't miss this” Jonathan Rosenbaum
"A tour de force of a very special kind ... an astonishing director" Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
