    Internetā un grāmatās var palasīt cik nenormāli grūti šī filma nākusi.
    To visu neatstāstīšu, vien teikšu, ka jau bērnībā, kad šo redzēju tā atstāja dīvainu iespaidu. Par onkuļiem, kuri vazājās pa kaut kādu pamestu un piecūkotu rūpnīcas teritoriju (ne ar ko ne sliktāku kādā ložņājām vietējās stroikās un Brocēnu cementa un šīfera kombināta teritorijā), guļ peļķēs un kaut ko runājās. Toreiz man teica, kā tā ir fantastika, bet komon - kur tad lidojošie šķīvīši un marsieši?
    Nu tā...
    Ar laiku…

    Stalker (the name isn't exactly fitting) is an odd film. It's pacing is slow but not exactly tiresome, the imagery is simple yet beautiful, and the story isn't exactly important but the characters are. This is the type of film people can pick to death but I prefer to just settle down, watch it in one sitting, and enjoy it for the intangible feeling it creates every time I watch it.

    With only two more films left to view in Tarkovsky's filmography, he either has amazed me with his storytelling (Andrei Rublev) or left me scratching my head at the praise his films get, yet wanting to be able to join in (Mirror). Stalker fell in the latter portion.

    Tarkovsky seems to get almost lost in his environments to the point where he forgets he has a story that needs to continue being told. I very much like the story and…

    Rarely in Stalker are the characters, spatially, the most important things in the frame. The bleak, fleetingly hopeful environment looms. It is king, and the three men who guide our experience are mere servants.

    I normally hate when something unhuman is described as “its own character,” but the environment Tarkovsky cultivates—full of vague mystery—is truly that, because of its vitality and human evolutions. It is, at first, dull and grey and tame. However, as the men reach the wild Zone,…

    It is hard for me to pick a favourite Tarkovsky film because Andrei Rublev and Solyaris are also undeniably great. What it comes down to for me is two scenes in Stalker which turn cinema into a great art. The first is the trip into the Zone, an incredible long and hypnotic scene in which the sound of the rails starts to merge with traces of synthesizer music by Eduard Artemyev. This scene completely hooked me after the brooding introduction…

    Outstanding adaptation of a original Russian book. Deep (really too dry to be honest) : at least the cinematography is top notch.

    Andrei Tarkovsky; austere and influential Russian director who helped popularise the idea that the cinema of his nation could be as rich with existential themes and provocative ideas as its literature. Yet despite its reputation as a slow art film, brimming with pessimistic ideas on wealth and morality like a science fiction remake of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the thing that caught me whilst watching Stalker is how its…
