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.

Incluso dentro del cine soviético, ninguna de las formas de hacer cine que he presenciado de múltiples cineastas se asemeja a la que tenía Andrei Tarkovski. Tarkovski era un hombre al que le gustaba realizar trabajos reflexivos, no tanto entretener a la gente; Solaris, Andrei Rublev, Zérkalo, entre otras películas son un ejemplo claro de lo que estoy narrando. Sin embargo, esta obra de la que... 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)

Tarkovski era un hombre al que le gustaba realizar trabajos reflexivos, no tanto entretener a la gente; Solaris, Andrei Rublev, Zérkalo, entre otras películas son un ejemplo claro de lo que estoy narrando. Sin embargo, esta obra de la que hoy me voy a poner a hablar es una que pondría como más interesante que el resto: Stalker.Como toda película de Tarkovski, esta posee un ritmo infernalmente lento, lo que, a su vez, hace que todo lo que tenga por contarnos sea lo suficientemente dejado en claro ya sea a través del guión o del lenguaje visual.Y empezaré de una vez hablando de esto último, el lenguaje visual.La dirección de” read more

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"A rough-hewn hired guide brings two intellectuals to a forbidden, possibly radioactive Russian territory called “The Zone.” Over the course of a single day, the men traipse around an overgrown, abandoned structure, and eventually enter a room that’s believed to have the power to satisfy someone’s deepest wish. It’s the reverence and trepidation of the visitors that imbues the space with magic — much as Andrei Tarkovsky’s movie camera can make a flowing brook, a bird flying overhead"

A classic movie

“Of course, after watching more than 6000 movies, I had to watch a movie directed by Andrei Tarkovsky at some point, especially since the guy has such a stellar reputation. Well, according to IMDb, it is his best movie, so I guess it was a good place to start. However, to be honest, even though I expected it, it still turned out to be a rather challenging movie. I mean, basically, it is about three guys wandering for almost 3 hours in a place called the ‘Zone’ and, even though it does sound like a science-fiction feature, there was nothing really futuristic about this place. Of course, the fans of this movie in particular and in Tarkovsky in general would argue that this movie went just way beyond being a simple SF feature and they would be right. However, I’m afraid I was not smart” read 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

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"Subscribing to the belief that the eyes are the windows to the soul, Andrei Tarkovsky locates Stalker’s spiritual center in his protagonists’ weathered countenances. One of cinema’s greatest portraitists, he offers up a gallery of masterful close-ups: some dipped in sepia-toned bronzes; others cast in the harsh light of a cloudy morning; several obscured by dank, dark shadows. No two alike and all stunning in their formal composition and expressiveness, Tarkovsky’s visages—from the lar"

“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.
