Meditative and deeply spiritually affecting. Tarkovsky's masterpiece mirrors Russian literature in that it contains some discourses of extreme spiritual depth (similar to what you might find in a Dostoevsky or Tolstoy novel). A very demanding and intellectual film, but also very stimulating and satisfying.

"There is sin and dirt all around." Artistic as Solyaris but not as brilliant and entertaining as Stalker.

Albeit too preachy and the director's cut (3 hours 20 minutes long) may have been a bit too detailed that made it sluggish to watch. Locations and direction were wonderful, of only the pace and method of storytelling coupled with some nice editing could have made this better. Violent, shocking, chaotic, artistic and realistic with its screenplay. Themes of religion, temptations, history, politics and forgiveness. Andrey Rublyov may have been monumental then but for this critic, it has its ups and downs. Not sure how the …
