Duck’s review published on Letterboxd:
I can’t find the words right now, but to be honest, I don’t know if I ever will.
Words like “meticulous” or “amazing” fail to describe how I feel about Stalker.
To me at least, calling it “thought-provoking”would be close to an insult towards how I felt and the film itself. I became utterly lost in the midst of all the themes and topics, with the story and atmosphere tensing me up to the point where when it was over, I almost felt as if I had forgotten how to get off my seat. Not your average sci-fi film but far more spellbinding than anything else out there, besides for maybe a few other masterpieces of the genre. Not your average adventure but just so enthralling.
I really can’t say much else for now, just do yourself a favour and watch this absolutely transcendent masterwork. Thank you Tarkovsky
and thank you for reading
