A real enigma of a film. It never tries to explain its many mysteries; it leaves it to the viewer to sort out what it's all supposed to mean. It's extremely slow -- sometimes tediously so -- but it never feels like a waste of time. It makes some very unusual and interesting points about faith -- not just religious faith, but faith in oneself, faith in the world, faith in the future, faith in anything.

A glorious compendium of faith. An incredibly dense masterpiece with a truly infinite wealth of possibilities. There is never an end to a film by Tarkovsky; they're so uniquely haunting and beautiful that you take them with you into real life. Damn if it isn't my favorite movie ever.

Sublime. Laboriously paced but never boring, it presents us with some fascinating philosophical questions but the main attraction is the absolutely mesmerizing atmosphere. Tarkovsky is a master of his craft and the film is a visual masterpiece -and, probably, a masterpiece period.

Amazingly dense, a rich and thoughtful work of philosophy and religion. It will take repeated viewings for me to mine all of the meaning out of it, I'm certain that I've only scratched the surface. Also, the photography and use of locations is truly stunning.

Stalker may have some of the most impressive cinematography that I have ever seen. Quite literally, this is a moving canvas by a phenomenal artist. The story wasn't as jaw dropping as the visuals, but its tough to fault the film for that in this case.

Interesting premise with magnificent and intriguing visuals. It was a little too slow though, and the music lulled me to sleep a bit. Hopefully I'll pick more of what it was trying to say on a second viewing.

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.

On my second viewing I had read Sculpting in Time twice prior to seeing it and you definitely notice a lot of reoccurring themes, thoughts and ideas - even the use of singular words. Still I must say that I have few, very few minor - minor gripes with it. Lovely electronic score and his tactfulness for sounds and their different nuances really comes through.
