Matthew’s review published on Letterboxd:
I know I say this a lot but I’m truly at a loss for words. I’m almost mentally exhausted from how much this film made me think and ponder, being that it deals with the themes of desire and suffering. Tarkovsky created a genius character study that increases its impact every minute of the runtime. The use of long, lingering shots in this film made me instantly fall in love with it. I have nothing else to say but... this film is a true masterpiece.
