Strangely alluring, but maybe that is because of the premise. The actual execution was disappointing IMO. I don't mind that it's long, but more that it doesn't do as much with that runtime as I expected. Like Solaris, Stalker has some philosophical babble that I don't really much care for, but Stalker has heavy religious undertones. I probably shouldn't have been laughing at the ending.

Perfect direction by Tarkovsky with fascinating and beautiful scenery. This is a film about man's desire or need for peace and understanding, and perhaps, for meaning if it's a means to that end. By the end of the two and a half hours (don't worry, it's brisk), we realize that the answers lie not in money and power or in escape or in religion, but within ourselves. After seeing this film, there's no question I'm a different cinephile and who knows, maybe a different person.

The tale at the core being a search for meaning in what seems a simultaneous criticism on Russia and parralel to Woman in the Dunes is redeeming, but Stalker is underpinned and makes use of the wrong kind of philosophy. It sometimes overextends its gloomy and tenebrous presentations to seemingly lend legitimacy to the interjecting esoteric musings, suggesting there is analytical coherence when there isn't. Yes, they are poetic, but its contents often mirror the messy structure of the film.

This is my first Tarkovsky, and other than Bergman and Kieslowski, no other filmmaker has imbued a film with such genuine, sincere, and arresting observations on humanity and spirituality without ever once even bordering on pretension or heavyhandedness. The images and set-pieces jump off the screen, and yet have a beautiful simplicity about them. Stunning and unforgettable.

idealism's last stand in an eden strewn with the clutter of ungranted wishes. may be too overtly allegorical to be his best film, but it's among the medium's most meditative experiences, and the bulk of its fears and dreams and agonies are expressed through composition and actor posture alone.

As an audio-visual experience, it's unparalleled, and its premise is interesting. Its slow, contemplative pace and the visuals and sounds make it an absorbing experience, but at times Stalker lingers on an environment or a concept for too long, breaking the dream-like state it previously induced. Regardless, if you can make it through all 25 hours, Stalker will make an impact on you - if not for its philosophical musings, for the environments it immerses you in.

Tarkovsky in complete control of his cinema. If you can tolerate 2 hours and 40 minutes of the human condition, as told by three Beckettian lost souls trying to find meaning by escaping (even temporarily) a tedious, nuclear-paranoid world, you will be richly rewarded.

A thought-provoking, beautifully shot and directed masterpiece. It's the kind of film you have to work you way up to in that it becomes more fulfilling the more you know about film, and the more you think about what it's trying to communicate.

It was really good for some parts then dreadfully boring in others. However, I can forgive this when I think of the great cinematography. The best thing about the entire movie is the sound though.
