Stalker ★★

Finally introduced myself to Tarkovsky after avoiding his films for so long due to skepticism. Watched an hour yesterday and fell asleep, make of that what you will. Finished the rest today and well I think my initial doubts were justified. Just not my type of film sadly, which I don’t blame the film for. There’s aspects which I admire like the cinematography and the dystopian atmosphere but that’s about it. The first 90 mins is three people getting from point A to point B while speaking mostly in allegories/analogies.
