Sacrificio el haber tardado tantos años para poder apreciarla 🤌🏼
So beautifully haunting. A silent look inwards about the end of the world and what that would be like. Utterly fantastic Tarkovskys last win
The end of the world is a cool thing in movies. Aliens exploding Mt Rushmore or a tornado picking up the pyramids or whatever. Not true here
The unbearable sadness that takes me when I think about the sacrifice of all the crew of Stalker before this movie
A bit too long, and I think it's better before it gets really Tarkovskyeque, but it's overall pretty good to see Tarkovsky doing Bergman.
unexpectedly good lots of memorable scenes
Philosophical and mystical, Tarkovsky‘s last film explores questions of self-sacrifice and guilt. Difficult but rewarding.
This film is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen
See with all your sence. Interesting movie.
