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.

Para definir este tipo de cine no es necesario utilizar demasiadas palabras. Me parece que se vierten ríos de tinta para intentar describir la mística del cine de Tarkovsky, cuando su ubicación natural se encuentra en la emoción. Se trata de despertar o no conciencias, de llegar a determinadas sensibilidades (lo habitual es que el propósito se quede a mitad de camino), de conciliar estados, p... read more

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)

“Excelente pelicula, llena de filosofía. Esta compuesta mayormente de dialogos entre los protagonistas. Es sumamente atmosferica, ambientada en la Zona, un territorio abandonado.

Muy recomendada si te gusta el cine lento y reflexivo.” read more

“Soy un fan de Mushishi, pese a sus problemas, me parece reflexivo e interesante. Luego de tiempo viendo cine, no me he topado con algún exponente equiparable, no hasta que descubrí la existencia de Tarkovsky y de su obra más popular. Stalker es como agarrar un capitulo de esa serie, y como solo es una historia única, no tiene que lidiar con sus errores de continuidad.

Hablemos del argumento con detenimiento. Es una especie de exploración temática acerca de tres hombres que contactan con la naturaleza, cada uno con una reacción distinta a esta. El principal es un stalker, una especie de guía que lleva a la gente a la zona, este lugar prohibido para el público por ser nociva para los humanos según dicen los rumores, y dos hombres comunes, un escritor y un profesor. El pun” read more

Top 10 - Andrei Tarkovsky (10 movies items)

"Stalker (1979) "Let everything that's been planned come true. Let them believe. And let them have a laugh at their passions. Because what they call passion actually is not some emotional energy, but just the friction between their souls and the outside world. And most important, let them believe in themselves. Let them be helpless like children, because weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing. When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive."
