    This is probably the pinnacle of pure technical filmmaking I've seen to this point. The cinematography is absolutely stunning, Tarkovsky may have very well invented the "every frame a painting" idea, the characters and writing are deep and rich and really interesting (even educational), and even the story and ending work perfectly. It didn't connect with me like my favorite films ever do, but I would not find it hard to believe at all that people consider "Stalker" to be one of the best movies ever made

    Когда я увидела этот фильм впервые, это было словно я впервые видела море, горы, слышала хоровую музыку из тысячи голосов, и другие столь же захватывающие, пробирающие до костей ошущения. Киноязык Тарковского уникален и отпечатывается в памяти яркими, но мрачными картинами. Это не просто фильм, это целый пласт культуры и переживаний в одной картине. Потрясающе.

    Its a slow burn for sure, but the slightest bit of intrigue carries you through. Both an introspective look at the few on their journey also clashing ideals, between science and belief. In the end, I think it became too 'on the nose' for my liking but I still very much enjoyed the theme. The stunning scenery littered with withering cold war esque supplies made for some great shots, and the longer, almost sweeping shots really helped establish the environment of the so called Zone

    Stalker - Endlich habe ich meinen ersten Film von Andrei Tarkovsky gesehen. Insgesamt hat er mir sehr gut gefallen.

    Tarkovsky hat einen spirituellen Film geschaffen, der mit seiner Kameraarbeit, Komposition und Musik einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterlässt. Bezeichnend, dass Tarkovsky auch für das Szenenbild verantwortlich war. Rostende Panzerwracks, verlassene Gebäude und die tiefstehende Sonne verleihen der 'Zone' eine beklemmende Atmosphäre. Die Stille, die ab und an durch heulende Wölfe unterbrochen wird, trägt dazu bei.

    Mystisch-Philosophische Filme neigen dazu, ihre Figuren und…

    "The Zone wants to be respected. Otherwise it will punish."

    Stalker is a philosophical, poignant and thought-provoking sci-fi masterpiece that, like other Tarkovsky films, becomes a mesmerizing and hypnotic experience with its methodical and slow pacing and absolutely beautiful and dream-like imagery. It is thematically dense and delves into ideas and themes of faith, hope and identity (that's at least what i picked up on this first viewing), and has a brilliant use of color and incredibly creative camerawork. I loved the mystery of the Zone and the sand room,…

    You don't ask a magician to explain his tricks. No questions asked. And as some have said, trying to explain what makes this experience, or unravel it is almost grasping at straws and simply unneeded, at least for me because I couldn't remotely shed any light, watch the film and let that light rain over you. Certain filmmakers such as Tarkosvky, Malick and Kieślowski work in the dreamlike and unworldly solemn upper echelon. The beauty of their films is immeasurable,…

    No leaves ever seared,
    no limbs broken rough.
    Days, like glass, washed all clear,
    only that's not enough.

    It's never enough. Desire brings torment which in itself brings a stronger desire, we swim in a vortex, run in circles, never coming to satisfaction. When a writer found inspiration he loses the reason to write, a professor given a chance to exact revenge loses the motivation to do so, people have struggled so hard to reach the heart of The Zone,…

    First of all, I'm sorry for the long text and for any grammar errors. This was the first time I saw this movie and until then I did not even know what it was about,

    I'll start with the conlusion: tt's one of the best movies ever made.

    This film is about hope: a perfect metaphor of life itself, the persuit of happiness, illustrated by an actual journey of three men, with totally different personalities, in search of their personal…

    I'm sorry but i felt like this movie was an exercise in oppressiveness. All of the scenes dragged on forever and random philosophical mumbling. The visuals were interesting and that's about it. Pretentious as hell
