You Don't Need Lasers to Make A Good Sci-Fi Flick

This film is an excellent example of what can happen when all of the effort of special effects is replaced with maximum effort into the script.
Definitely a thinking man's science fiction film whose intellect sacrifice none of the science nor none of the fiction.
The plot utilizes the fantasy element of the genre to delve intricately into themes of the pysche such as regret, love, pi... read more

In "Solaris" Russian director glances from the cosmos to the earth, to man. Tarkovsky does not make a trip "to infinity and beyond", but to the inner world of man. "I consider it my duty to encourage reflection on the specifically human and the eternal that lives within each of us," wrote Tarkovsky. It is no coincidence nor a matter of "resources", that special effects have been reduced to a minim... read more

I looked up the review for this in an old movie guide I used to use (Video Hound) and I was surprised that it gave it a fairly low rating. It focused on a negative comparison with 2001 and complained that there was too much talking in the film. This strikes me as a strong indication of cultural bias, as thought the Russians weren't allowed to have their own investigation of memory and the symbolic... read more

Description: The Solaris mission has established a base on a planet that appears to host some kind of intelligence, but the details are hazy and very secret. After the mysterious demise of one of the three scientists on the base, the main character is sent out to replace him. He finds the station run-down and the two remaining scientists cold and ...

“2hrs of gut wrenching, mind numbing, head melting boredom.

If you value two hours of your life then do not watch this film.

The only people I've found who actually watched this and say they liked it is people who thought Razorhead and films of that ilk was good cinema.

2 stars simply for the eye candy.

Go and paint the garden fence, you'll have way more fun, trust me!” read more

"Visually stunning and thematically complex, Solaris is a graceful meditation of mankind's dependence on conscience and guilt. The slow, non-manipulative pacing of Tarkovsky's masterwork makes this completely unlike any other film I've ever seen. A real mind-stimulator, quite emotionally impacting, and very beautifully shot. A real elaborate piece of art. "

" The movie Solaris has a space station, it takes place near another planet, but actually it's a mediation on the human individual and not really a space opera at all. Do we see other people as they are, or do they exist for us only in our ideas about them. The planet can read the man's mind and reproduce his dead wife, but as he looks at the reproduction he grows"

Science Fiction of the 70's! (50 movies items)

"The film follows a psychologist who is sent to a space station situated over the mysterious Solaris Ocean. He is told about strange occurrences in the station, and the Ocean's eerie ability to materialize people's thoughts and desires. After being in the station for a while, the psychologist finds himself becoming very attached to its alternate reality. Deep and lyrical, one of Tarkovsky's best. An eerie hallway of the space station."

"Thank you m08221196 Stanisław Lem observed that neither feature movie much depicts the extraordinary physical and psychological “alienness” of the Solaris ocean: “I only wanted to create a vision of a human encounter with something that certainly exists, in a mighty manner perhaps, but cannot be reduced to human concepts, ideas or images” Lem spent six months working with Tarkovsky in Moscow, but their collaboration ended in a bitter conflict over the changes and additions to the origi"

“Rarely does a film entrance me with the kind of atmosphere and ideas that Tarkovsky’s films do. He is the master of nostalgia, of the great struggles with reality and memory, of morality and selfishness. Can one escape a mistake from the past? How do you possibly learn from a mistake like that while simultaneously putting it behind you and out of your mind? At what point does tragedy lose its impact? In this film, Tarkovsky shows how real these memories can be for people, despite the decades that have passed. Dr. Kelvin is sent on a mission to go to the space station docked at the mysterious planetary object dubbed Solaris, which seems to be having peculiar effects on its inhabitants. Of the team sent there to research the planet's great oceans, only two remain. The rest have either left” read more
