It’s been a little over two months since I watched Time of the Gypsies and I have no real desire to watch it again to refresh my memory of particulars. The note I made at the time was that I found it “sloppy, amateurish, with some interesting things, about an hour too long”; I’ll add that it was filled with twee magical realism and my old bugaboo whimsy, and the look and feel of the movie were incredibly dated even taking into account the later breakup of Yugoslavia. I think I’ll pretty much leave it at that.
