Ragnar Kjartansson's video art piece A Lot of Sorrow is a 6-hour video of the band The National performing their single "Sorrow" over and over again in front of an audience at MoMA PS1.

As artnet News' Blake Gopnik puts it, "I have to admit that some of my pleasure in watching was sadistic: What dweeb art critic wouldn't get a thrill from watching a bunch of gorgeous hipsters being forced to enact and reenact their hipsterdom to the point of exhaustion? There's also plenty of masochism involved for the viewer: How many times can even the most dedicated artsie, or hard-bitten National fan, watch the same song being performed without wanting to run screaming from the gallery?"
