Quickie: Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker (1979) ★★★★

Despite watching this movie in 240p (I’m not joking) I still found Stalker to be one of the most visually appealing films ever created. It’s filled with so much social commentary that is notably effective thanks to the wonderfully crafted dialogue provided to us from Tarkovsky and the Strugatskiys. Stalker does however, suffer from its pacing that is sometimes achingly slow. Maybe one day I’ll return back to this masterpiece of filmmaking with an HD copy and end of admiring it significantly more. (Verdict: A-)
