Stalker movie poster

The creator of Solaris, Andrei Tarkovsky, again gazes into the future, and sees there a nebulous labyrinthine Zone that can be crossed only by a special class called Stalkers. Indeed the Zone looks and feels like nothing we are now familiar with, and it has few handles on which we can begin to get a grip, few patches of solid ground on which we can get a firm foothold. Will our Stalker make it through the mystical center of the Zone? Will you be able to stick with him to find out? 1979.

Tarkovsky, one of the true poets of world cinema. This is a visual masterpiece, though admittedly lacking on a narrative level. Being a great admirer of ANDREI ROUBLEV, I went to see it at UCSD in the 80's on 16mm and now very much look forward to seeing it on a bigger screen. The dripping water still haunts me to this very day.
