Thanks Harry! I just dropped by to pass on the above list to add to yours. So thanks for including the references. Let me leave just the two video references: Béla Tarr and film critic Howard Feinstein discuss the former's innovative filmography, punctuated by clips from his films at the Walker Art Center, December 22, 2008 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K104Srbj7h0&feature=player_embedded); and Two part live recording of discussion with Béla Tarr and Jonathan Romney at the Renoir cinema in London, 2007 (http://www.youtube.com/user/BelaTarrdotCom). Cheers.

Hi Harry, just a note to say THANK YOU so very much for this detailed list of sources. I got it from András Kováks new book on Bela Tarr, which you have of course listed. Are you planning to keep updating?
