"A cultural event...No one interested in world cinema should miss it." — J. Hoberman, Village Voice
Tarkovsky's visionary blend of science fiction, philosophy, and poetry centers on a Bermuda-Triangle-like region known as the Zone, created by the impact of a mysterious extraterrestrial object. An eerie hybrid of industrial wasteland and primeval forest, where mirages and mind-bending traps await the unwary traveler, the Zone has been placed off-limits, but guides known as Stalkers have special mentalist powers that enable them to lead illegal expeditions into its interior. STALKER is the story of one such expedition, in which a guide leads a writer and a scientist in search of a Room which, it is rumored, has the power to grant one's innermost desires. In Russian with English subtitles. 2K DCP digital restoration from Janus Films. (MR)
