You should check out the book. It's quite different and one of the best sci-fi books ever. Although I'm not sure how much it loses in translation.

I've watched precisely 2 Tarkovsky movies and that's all I will bother with. There's having patient pacing and taking the time to set a mood, and then there's just straight up wasting my time.

Movies can make me cry because they're sad, but only Tarkovsky's movies can make me cry through their sheer beauty.

Rational af. What did you see? I think that Ivan's Childhood is his most "accessible".

His movies bore the **** out of me. That trumps whatever else he might have to offer.

I watched Stalker and Solaris. At least his version of Solaris was better than the one with Clooney.

Straight up eye candy though, it's like jacking off my corneas. You should check out Ivan's Childhood.

Andrei Rublev is the only film of his that I felt was drawn out.

So in Solaris, you didn't find the 10 minute bit with stock footage of cars driving on a freeway to be drawn out?

Are you some sort of monk? I'm patient, but not that patient.

It's not that hard to watch things that are visually captivating imo. The car scene is an interesting sort of intermission/breather in the movie but is by and large unnecessary. That said I still think it looks nice. I put Stalker several notches higher than Solaris. I think it's his best alongside The Mirror.
