(Andrei Tarkovsky, 1979). Loosely adapted from a novel by the sci-fi writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Tarkovskys last Soviet film is a perverse replay of Solariss cosmic voyage, a remake of Andrei Rublev in a secular world of post-apocalyptic misery. (Its also weirdly evocative of David Lynchs Eraserhead). Stalker is as devious as it is gorgeousthe only certain thing is its blatant anti-technological, anti-rational, anti-materialist bias.
