    Hauntingly beautiful and deeply thoughtful. A masterpiece.

    Seems to be seeking a greater profundity than is actually communicated by the movie. Most of the time the attempt is absorbing; maintaining a perpetual state of impending revelation. And it's always, always beautiful - sometimes in horrible, disturbing ways.

    Not a film I would recommend to the casual movie enthusiast! But if you are looking for a film that not only offers cinematic beauty but is also chock full of cerebral delicacies such as spirituality and philosophical conundrums!

    In many ways the physical and emotional journey of the 3 men (And the Audience) appeared to be a spiritual pilgrimage of some sort!

    On a side note Tarkovsky and several others may have died due to filming for extended periods of time in highly toxic areas while making this film!

    Bizarre and hypnotic film that feels like a fable plays like one of the more exciting works that Andrei Tarkovsky ever directed.
    At just shy of three hours in length the film seems to go by relatively quickly.
    The first half is rather exciting as the three men: the stalker, the writer, and the scientist; find their ways to sneak past guards and boundaries to get to the zone-a transformative and cinematic move that reaches as high as the moment…

    Intense, yet not exciting. Stalker is a that is poetic and meditative film that explores the nature of belief and human desire. Now currently available, legally, for free. News article linked here www.openculture.com/2010/07/tarkovksy.html

    Finally gave up on waiting for a blu-ray release and picked up the Kino DVD. Suffice it to say, a re-watch was needed. What a massive picture. I love how Tarkovsky was able, with both this film and Solaris, to craft science fiction that instead of gazing outward at fantasy, forces the audience to look inward at themselves. I adore films that are in equal parts aesthetically beautiful and thematically thought-provoking. To call Stalker thought-provoking though, is certainly understatement. What…

    I finally watched Stalker yesterday and what I’ll say here is my initial thoughts only. I reserve the rights to change any and all parts…

    Stalker is a film unlike almost any other I have seen. A palpable sense of foreboding resonates in almost every frame. The sound design is especially effective in inducing a feeling of disorientation and disconnect in ‘The Zone’. The 3 main character’s, named only as their professions, journey is one of introspective discovery as they…

    I don't think I've ever experienced a movie quite like this. It was somewhere between tears, boredom, realisation, cold sweats and an anxiety attack thrown into the mix that this movie was something else. It was a philosophical, existential anti-trip that promised a journey, but delivered something far greater and unexplainable. This was supported by its beautiful cinematography and it's amazing sets. This movie holds so much tension and anticipation that it becomes almost too much to bear. You know…

    Slow but deliberate. Haunting and unique.

    La interesante premisa de Stalker te aburre o te fascina. Al igual que con la primera hora de Solaris, Stalker fue las dos cosas, y creo que son las únicas dos opciones que te deja esta película al verla: "Tres hombres, uno de ellos el guía denominado Stalker, viajan a través de un lugar postapocalíptico conocido como 'La Zona', en el cual buscan una habitación que tiene la capacidad de conceder deseos"

    Stalker está ejecutada mediante tres personajes con un…
