"While a man is on his way, there is still hope for him."
surprisingly good cinematography in spite of a definite lack of funding. some really good closeups paired with some fascinating monologues. kind of oddly colour graded but definitely interesting, and it might just be due to the poor video copy.
even having only seen one tarkovsky, the inspiration is clear. the rigid camera, controlled pans, zooms, it all screams Andrei.
the montage of explosions was one of my favourite couple minutes of cinema ever.
not just an anti war film, but also highly critical of humanity in general. offers conflicting messages on whether humanity is doomed or if there is still hope. a fascinating watch that definitely deserves a remaster.
very well directed, scored, and edited. I can tell the actors were phenomenally directed but the acting did slightly fall short in some places.
