This is the best directed movie I have ever seen, and one of my new favorites. Andrei Tarkovsky created one of the best pieces of art I have ever experienced. His visuals and cinematography are unmatched. Every scene is beautiful and totally ethereal. It really elevates this contemplative film to just pure art. It’s kind of hard to describe his style though. He makes unconventional angles conventional. Words truly can not do it justice. Good art should do exactly that, indescribable, and thats what Tarkovsky created. The narrative is also a masterpiece. Its very introspective and intelligent which I always enjoy, but combined with the sci-fi aspects, it creates a super unique film. I think each of three main characters are all super well written and acted, and combined create a super compelling story that really questions are desires and what they mean. They do so in a fresh take with the sci-fi aspects and just the maturity of the dialogue and characters. I give this movie a 5/5 for it truly is a beautiful work of art and quite easily one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
