Sculpting in Time: The Films of Andrei Tarkovsky

Andrei Tarkovsky is often lauded alongside such prominent names as Kubrick, Kurosawa, and Bergman. Critic Roger Ebert describes his films, in his review of Solaris (1972), as "more like environments than entertainments.” This is true in both the sense of their visceral and engrossing evocations, but also in the sense that Tarkovsky uses the materiality of nature as a representation of our inescapable spatiotemporal relation to the world. Perhaps Tarkovsky’s most poignant use of it comes in the flooded dream sequence of his 1979 masterpiece Stalker. Which, like all of his films, has an ineffable grace that lingers with the viewer for weeks afterwards. Curated by William Latham.
