    Really did NOT care for this.
    Such a waste of talent.

    (+½ star for including a Satie piece)

    This rating is solely dedicated to 💖Shelley Duvall💖 (and the perfect use of steadicam)

    Even better on a rewatch.

    Ivan's Childhood


    My first ever Tarkovsky feature

    the contrast between the expressionist, dream-sequences and the extreme realism during wartime perfectly portrays the destruction of innocence within people, caused by war and constant surrounding of violence.

    From a technical aspect this film is insanely well-made. Especially as a feature debut! The cinematography is very Stunning (I could watch that birch sequence on a loop for hours) and the camera movements are very innovative.
    Includes some of my -now- favorite shots in film

    Really love how Masha's subplot reflects the main plot.

    Difficult, slow-paced, but also a very enchanting, yet disturbingly bleak experience.
