1972. USSR. Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky. With Donatis Banionis. 165 min.
In this Russian riff on 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, Tarkovsky turns his surreal, slow-moving lens on an isolated space station hovering above a mysterious, possibly sentient planet. Tarkovsky manipulates the meditative viewing experience in ways that beg us to think and ask questions—about characters, their emotions, and what it means to be human.
