Stalker ★★★★½

Reviewed on The Geek Show.

Or: Andrei Tarkovsky's It's a Completely Fucking Terrible Life. I thought large stretches of this were almost wilfully unlovable when I watched it, but the whole thing was utterly admirable. As it settles in my head, I'm becoming more and more straightforwardly enamoured by it; call back in a week and I'll love it. Watching it is much like being a character in it; it's an arduous trek, but you might just get everything you ever dreamed of if you see it through.
