A great film on one of the world's great filmmakers.
| Original Score: A
I really enjoyed this portrait of a great artist as told in a personal way.
Footage of Tarkovsky on the set of The Sacrifice is augmented by Marker's insightful analysis of his films.
It's the best single piece of Tarkovsky criticism I know of, clarifying the overall coherence of his oeuvre while leaving all the principal mysteries in the films intact.
| Original Score: 4/4
Recommended for anyone interested in the great director.
| Original Score: 3/4
For anyone who is even remotely interested in the great filmmakers of the past century, it's a humble portrait of greatness that's great in itself.
The perfect introduction to a remarkable career, and a moving memorial to a remarkable filmmaker.
A brilliant appreciation of the last great Soviet director, Andrei Tarkovsky.
