Cadinho93’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Passion is the friction between one's soul and the outside world."
Stalker is excellent, particularly the cinematography. Andrei Tarkovsky captures the essence of the book "Roadside Picnic" within the film. It's something to wonder about knowing that he had already completed the film only to learn that it was destroyed. As good as the existing film is, there is a sense that the ghost of the original haunts it throughout. That feeling adds depth to an already deep film. Andrei Tarkovsky's films have a visual power that excels description. Overall, Stalker is one of the greatest films ever made.
