The ones that linger and last in memories and hold a place on a 'favorite movies' list all share these characteristics.
The dark knight (part two) was also approximately 3 hours long...
One of my fav movies is Heat.3 hours long held my interest the entire time.If the movie is great time doesn't matter
As far as the critics go I even saw one that they didn't like it because it was too dark..right up my alley
I really don't go by what critics say.They love movies like Milk and British period pieces
