    (This is an indie film released on YouTube. Link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwkIaJX3hmg )

    There's no doubt Stalker (1979) is one of the cornerstones of scifi canon. Yet, it's not even that abundantly clear that it *is* a scifi film: Tarkovsky decidedly took a more philosophical and spiritual approach that lends itself to many, many explanations. Yet, it's a film that is also based on source material: the novel Roadside Picnic by the Strugatsky brothers. The novel is definitely scifi and definitely more…
