Stalker

Andrei Tarkovsky

Feature Film

1979

A mesmerising film in which the characters and audience alike are forced to doubt the evidence of their senses and their corresponding judgments.

Structure

Famously slow and languid, this is a film about texture and time. It is essential to let yourself be engulfed by a big screen, but once you are in it is unforgettable. There are images here which are like small stories in themselves, seeming to contain more information than most films. Yet there is virtually no dialogue, little movement and no car chases.
