11 Longest Most Meaningless Movies in the World

Have you ever given the prize of the longest most meaningless movies in the world to any film? Whether you have or not, come with us now and let’s give this prize to eleven films. Once, one of acquaintances gave me a DVD and made me promise to watch that film. OK, I said. And I began to watch it. Oh my God, it was SO long and absolutely meaningless that I couldn’t watch it to the end. I can’t remember it’s title, (and I even don’t want to – I am happy to have forgotten about it!) but it was the worst film ever for me. When I gave back the DVD to her, she laughed and said she had wanted me to watch it because she meant to make me fool…. It was not a good joke…

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the longest most meaningless movies in the world from their list.

The first one is 24-Hour Psycho. Artist Douglas Gordon took Alfred Hitchcock’s film Psycho and slowed it down so it runs exactly 24 hours. This is one of the more popular and accessible (relatively?) experimental films of this nature. Gordon showed it in 1993, and the film forms a major part of the plot of postmodern novelist Don DeLillo’s 2010 novella Point Omega, which is just 110 pages long — almost the same number of minutes as Psycho. The next film is The Cure for Insomnia. Video artist John Henry Timmis IV filmed his colleague, outsider artist Lee Groban, reading a four-thousand-page poem called “The Cure for Insomnia” in 1987. In the years since the filming, Groban continued to expand the poem until, by his death in 2011, it had reached 5,000 pages. The last film on our list now is Matrjoschka. Even it’s title is absolutely meaningless. i mean I know what is matrjoschka…. but…. anyway. German artist Karin Hoerler created this epic piece of glitch art in 2006 using a single photo that she manipulated and distorted over a huge length of time. Glitch art is an intentional distortion of digital files by either tinkering with the data or altering the hardware that processes the data.
