Stalker ★★★★★

I never tire of this film, my favorite Tarkovsky (though I've not yet seen them all). It's the prototype of Lo-Fi Sci Fi, with a whole lot of mystery and menace and scenery porn. It's a big departure from the source novel but in an entirely acceptable way.

Tonight I felt like watching it again because I spent the day bingeing on the Tanis podcast, which borrows a lot from it. Made for a good day.
