Brandon's Review of Stalker

5 years ago via Movies on Android phone


As with other cinematic titans, like Bergman and Kubrick, the great Andrei Tarkovsky opened up a different plane of communication through art. He dealt on a deeply spiritual level, and this may very well be his magnum opus.

A religious odyssey that explores the journey of human beings from nothingness to something greater. At times a Christ allegory, and at others a twisted and surreal adventure. This is cinema as art on the highest level imaginable.

It isn't that the film is vital viewing for artists or craftsman, it should be considered a kind of unofficial requirement.
