A remarkable cinematic experience that takes viewers deep into another world, and even further into themselves. The ‘stalker’ of the title is a guide through the dangerous, forbidding territory known as ‘the Zone’, leading a writer and a scientist to an area that is said to contain ‘the Truth’. The plot and the philosophical musings thicken as the group journey on; individual ideas and images will haunt the mind, while Tarkovsky gives the whole film a look and feel that sets it apart from anything else you’ve ever seen.
Dir Andrei Tarkovsky, 1979, Soviet Union, 163 mins, English subtitles
