This films themes are already haunting enough, but with the fact that it was completed just months before Tarkovsky's death at only 54, it is emotionally elevated to an extreme degree. Just breathtaking in every possible usage of the word.
okay look, of course this is not a good movie. It is a bad movie. A very very bad movie, but you cant say my rating is wrong because any reason you say i should give this a 1/10 will be combated with the fact that, that's the point.
This film works so so so so so so so well as a comedy about a filmmaker. That was not what it was intended to be of course, but that does…
