    The last time I watched this film I wasn't really stunned by it, I acknowledged it's themes and it's direction and it left me wanting more of the ole' Tarkovsky but I did never feel it was "great".

    So for two days ago my friend who has a normal interest in cinema and films texted me the following "Don't you want to watch STALKER with me someday?".
    Naturally I thought it would be the film "STALKERS" from 2013 and not…

    It's important to remember that this is science fiction at it's purest, mixing fantasy and realism with the intention of showing the audience something about the contemporary world we live in. This is how science fiction was approached in literature, before the days of film, used as an allegory or metaphor for our world or as an attempt to answer fundamentally human questions instead of being vessels for special effects. Whilst today's sci-fi blockbusters are visually stunning, the genre rarely…

    Andrei Tarkovsky is possibly one of the most interesting directors of all time. His style really drags your patience but it also lowers your expectations of what might happen, so that when something happens it's much more impactful (example, what works better, an explosion in a Transformers film or an explosion in a drama? You're not expecting the explosion from the drama, that's why it's more impactful when it happens). Anyways, I certainly had my doubts with him about his…

    I have seen the face of God and it is Stalker.

    Okay, I don't really know what this was about, but Jesus Christ if it isn't compelling and haunting and beautiful and other adjectives. I think it's #29 on Sight and Sound's greatest movies. Deservedly.

    My conscience wants vegetarianism to win over the world. And my subconscious is yearning for a piece of juicy meat. But what do I want?

    Hablar de Stalker es una tarea que requiere absoluto compromiso, el hecho de poner en palabras la película sería quitarle esa magia, esa atmósfera de sueño en la que nos sumergimos al comenzar el visionado. Pero es una tarea que vale la pena hacer, difícilmente sea lo suficientemente digna, pero vale la pena intentarlo.

    "You dream of one thing, but you get quite another."

    There's no way I could do the brilliance of this film justice with a typical review. Let's just say that watching this was an experience I'll never forget.

    Not sure what to say after my first viewing of Stalker, other than — a. I really want to read Geoff Dyer's Zona: A Book About a Film About a Journey to a Room now; b. Stalkers gonna stalk.

    Trebalo je i onu žensku da povedu u ZONU. Kontam da bi bilo zanimljivije, a i zbog razonode.

    Menschen wie Ideen in einer Welt wie eine Parabel. Bedächtiges Vortasten in die menschliche Psyche auf der Suche nach dem Sinn, dem Glück, vielleicht Gott. Da ist ein Schriftsteller, ein Wissenschaftler und der Stalker, der sich später als Priester auf nicht enden wollender Pilgerreise herausstellt.

    Es gibt nichts, das den Bildern von Tarkowski gleichkommt. Ruinen einer von allem Höheren verlassenen Welt, eine düstere, dreckige Textur - weniger Farben als vielmehr die Erinnerung von Farben. Jede Einstellung erzählt viele Geschichten. "Stalker"…

    "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…
