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)

“Stalker may not be my favourite of Andrei Tarkovsky's films, that belongs to Andrei Rublev, which is from personal opinion the greatest Soviet film ever made. It's also not his most accessible(Ivan's Childhood), if anything only Solaris is more divisive. However Stalker is still an outstanding film, it loses momentum ever so slightly at the end but not enough for it to hurt the film.

As with all Tarkovsky films, Stalker is brilliantly made. It is grittier and more muted in colour than with his other films, but still maintains that hypnotic dream-like quality that the cinematography in his films have. The scenery is evocatively atmospheric, mundane but in a good way. Tarkovsky's direction again is nigh-on impeccable, showing a mastery of visuals and mood. Stalker is hauntingly sco” read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1970's) (110 movies items)

" Notes: 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."

Movies I Watched in June 2021 (31 movies items)

" Date: 6/22/2021 Viewed: Criterion Channel First Viewing Note: I always wanted to watch Stalker for so many years because it looks absolutely amazing. I admit that I haven't seen much of Andrei Tarkovsky's work other than Ivan's Childhood (1962) and Solaris (I remember not liking it. However, that could change with a brand-new viewing). After watching this movie for the first time on the Criterion Channel, I was like "Wow!". I was speechless after the movie was over. Stalker is a masterpiece "

“Simplemente excelente, es la primera película que veo del director y ya me doy una idea de su calibre. Vi unos cuantos videos y estoy al tanto de que esta película se filmo en verdaderos lugares abandonados y radioactivos, ademas de que hubo que re-filmarla 3 veces, la producción fue una pesadilla.

El resultado final es magnífico, una obra maestra que te absorbe por completo en su mundo, la atmósfera está tan bien lograda que a pesar de ser estar en un aspect ratio de 4:3 sientes que estas ahí adentro, en los bosques, en los edificios, etc.

Lo mejor probablemente sea el guión. Esta compuesto en su mayoría de muy buen dialogo entre los 3 protagonistas, monólogos filosóficos sobre la fe, la vida y la esperanza en un mundo gris y decaído.” read more

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
