Profile of Solaris

The mood of Solaris is mind bending, contemplative, and stylized. The plot centers around space travel, obsession, and space and aliens. It is a drama, foreign, and sci-fi movie. Stylistically, Solaris is futuristic, is surreal, and is talky. In approach, it is fantastical and serious. The pacing is slow. Solaris is based on a book. The movie is known for being a Cannes festival winner, a masterpiece, and essential viewing.

Slow, but ravishingly beautiful and charged with a real poignancy.

Chicago Tribune
An amazing celluloid poem by a filmmaker whom Ingmar Bergman called "the greatest." He very nearly was. He was also, perhaps, too pure a creator and reckless a citizen to survive unscathed.

I love Tarkovsky's films and this one is my favorite. Low on high tech visual effects one might expect from a science fiction film but the intelligent dialogue, the mystery, and beautiful cinematography set the tone and mood for this picture and do...

Im not really sure how to judge this one fairly. ----- On the one hand, its in bad need of some cutting/re-editing, it is seriously just too long. But on the other hand, I wasnt exactly bored watching it; I was more...complacent, so to speak. And at...

Utterly pretentious. A lot of thought went into this movie, and a lot of thought has been put into enjoying this movie. I ask you this: Why is sophistication so lauded? The film even seems to ask you this question in one of it's forced dialogues,...

I was curious to see Tarkovsy's Solaris after seeing Soderbergh's version. It's a beautiful film, on the level of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg or Chushingura. Oddly enough, it's a more human film than the 2002 remake. An attempt is made to explain...
