STALKER (1972) | directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
Language: Russian with English subtitles
"One of the most immersive and rarefied experiences in the history of cinema, Andrei Tarkovskys Stalker embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guidethe Stalker of the titleleads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumored to fulfill ones most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work, his painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere further enriched by this vivid new digital restoration. At once a religious allegory, a reflection of contemporary political anxieties, and a meditation on film itselfamong many other interpretationsStalker envelops the viewer by opening up a multitude of possible meanings."
SOLARIS (1979) | directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
Russian with English subtitles
"Ground control has been receiving mysterious transmissions from the three remaining residents of the Solaris space station. When cosmonaut and psychologist Kris Kelvin is dispatched to investigate, he experiences the same strange phenomena that afflict the Solaris crew, sending him on a voyage into the darkest recesses of his consciousness. With Solaris, the legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky created a brilliantly original science-fiction epic that challenges our conceptions about love, truth, and humanity itself." - via FilmsWeLike
