      I stopped talking to Cinemaphile (one person) about this movie after anons expressed disappointment that little to no overt science-fiction bullshit appeared in it. Maybe it would be largely praised here if Zach Snyder directed the film.

        because any movie that requires even an ounce of historical context to understand is just too much for the averaged moron (aka Cinemaphile poster)

        hey frick you, I love Stalker and all Tarkovsky movies and some of Snyder's stuff too, dont be a small brain and make generalizations like the other moron

      The whole movie involves the golden sphere, and is more of a philosophical meditation on various things building up to the confrontation with the sphere. The ending features a pretty good exploration of the idea of the sphere and the meatgrinder. I quite liked it. Id say it's even more in depth than the book

      It doesn't. Red reaches the sphere, makes a wish and that's it. THE END. It's not confirmed that the sphere grants wishes at all, not even speaking about such profound changes in the universe.

    This movie is so fricking boring. The best way to tell someone just says titles to sound smart is with this picture. The absolute pointlessness is befuddling. Tarkovsky punished his audience on purpose. He wants the mundanity and silence to be unwatchable. No wonder this film killed actors who worked on it. The toxicity of its contrarian entertainment was palpable.

        completely boring and uninteresting. there are slow pace atmosphereic movies I enjoy(rainbow, under the skin, field in england, hard to be a god etc.) and I've sat through and enjoyed several ozu flicks so it's not attention span. stalker is just a boring fricking movie.

          There's nothing wrong with Stalker, 8 1/2 or Eraserhead. But, Eraserhead > Stalker > 8 1/2 but all are also masterpieces. 8 1/2 is even more annoying in its incessant chitchat bullshit than Stalker in its navel gazing somnolence. Eraserhead is pure kino all around.

            I can understand why impressionable teenagers who haven't seen many films would find cheese like stalker or eraserhead a "masterpiece", but I have never and will never see what these kids are seeing in 8 1/2. it's about as entertaining as a play written and performed by a college drama troupe.

      lots of crazy shit actually happens in the book; some more bizarre and mysterious, as well as more overt stuff like what you see in the s.t.a.l.k.e.r games like the burner anomalies, gravitational stuff, vortexes, walking dead etc.

    >Upon its release the film's reception was less than favorable. Officials at Goskino, a government group otherwise known as the State Committee for Cinematography, were critical of the film. On being told that Stalker should be faster and more dynamic, Tarkovsky replied:
    The film needs to be slower and duller at the start so that the viewers who walked into the wrong theatre have time to leave before the main action starts.

            I really enjoyed stalker because I thought the zone was really suspenseful even though with hindsight you can see it was the way it was for budgetary reasons.

            The wife at the end gives you an anime level "I'm spelling the point out now" lecture.

    This film was my first dive into mindfulness as a teenager. Before this I had only watched action movies and stuff.
    I love this movie, but it's not for everyone and I can understand why many people think it's boring.

    Some people don't ever experience a desire for adventure, wanderlust, or strong desires beyond having sex or getting rich. The film speaks to people who are terrified of a mundane existence, which is ironic considering how generally mundane the film is.

    One problem I have with the movie is that we never see any of the weird shit that's supposed to happen in the zone that the Stalker is talking about. Why is throwing those ropes with the construction nuts attached? For the most part it's just an uneventful journey through a bunch of abandoned areas. The philosophical questions are interesting, but that's not enough. Still a very good movie.

      To maintain the possibility that it's all just made up superstitious garbage. It strengthens the philosophical angle when all supposed threats remain psychological.

        If Tarkvosky wants to lecture us on philosophy, he could write a thesis or simply deliver a lecture.

    Tarkovsky and Bresson are very similar con-artists. However, Ivan's Childhood, A Man Escaped and Pickpocket are good films. The rest is utilitarian, nihilistic trash masquerading as transcendental cinema. The fact that they're so venerated is a testament to hollowness of cinema criticism and the audience that they gaslight.

    • 3 weeks ago

      The people who worship Bresson and Tarkovsky also worship open sociopaths like Godard, Jodorowsky, Paul Thomas Andreson. It's not that surpising, really, the "95% are hylics who can't see what's right in front of their eyes" rule also applies to cinema.

        I'm suspicious of anything especially "slow arthouse cinema" being peddled as transcendental/spiritual these days. The people who make these are obsessed with portraying themselves as intellectual more than anything. Such petty minds cannot create transcendent art.
