The film inspired by Roadside Picnic is directed by Russian prodigy Andrei Tarkovsky. I’ve sat through only one other of his films in the past and that was Solaris. Although it wasn’t a bad film, watching it through can feel like quite hard word at times, given that extremely long cuts and droning silences seem to be his directorial trademarks. Stalker felt like a much easier film to digest, i... read more

There are four ways to make a film as powerful and memorable as Stalker: 1) Minimal, but well-use, of dialogue and monologues, 2) The film should be clouded by an atmosphere of immense power and tranquility, 3) Explain nothing, but show everything and anything you possibly can. Let your thinking flow from your brain to the camera and 4) Have Andrei Tarkovsky on one's team. With the exception of th... read more

Look I found this film overrated, all the fuss about it being brilliant, yeah whatever this film is pretty boring and I can think of about a billion other films better than this that have a lower all around rating. Couldn't keep my eyes open it was that boring. Don't bother to watch this unless you have run out of sleeping pills.

Description: Near a gray and unnamed city is the Zone, an alien place guarded by barbed wire and soldiers. Over his wife's numerous objections, a man rises in the dead of night: he's a stalker, one of a handful who have the mental gifts (and who risk imprisonment) to lead people into the Zone to the Room, a place where one's secret hopes come true. That night, he takes two people into the Zone: a popular writer who is burned out, cynical, and questioning his genius; and a quiet scientist more concerned about his knapsack than the journey. In the deserted Zone, the approach to the Room must be indirect. As they draw near, the rules seem to ch ... (more)

"15.8. Minusta tuntuu, että katson aina Tarkovskit väärällä hetkellä ja väärään aikaan. Stalker saattaisi olla kuvakulmien, teemojensa ja värimaailmansa ansiosta mestariteos, mutta nyt en sitä kyennyt täysin näkemään."

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

" 2 May. Twenty (or so) yeas after its release, Andrei Tarkovsky's sci-fi "masterpiece" crept into all-time greatest movies list. It is surely memorable for its trio of characters and their journey into the known-unknown, their collage of philosophical debates demanding attention. While, this is not a beautiful film to look at (you can't argue cinematography here), the dark grime and dilapidated scenery is unattractive even in color, it has an attractive quality of an old photograph.  "
