ian’s review published on Letterboxd:
This film lays out every question. An honest, mysterious, brilliant, challenging, mesmerizing, complex, philosophical, and cavernously hypnotic work of art. With Stalker, Tarkovsky most certainly left a beautiful dent permanently gaping into my consciousness not only as a lover of cinema, but also as a human. Of the few films i would show to aliens if they asked for a batch, this one is included.
