    There is so much beauty in simplicity. This movie is the epitome of poetry, so poetic in its views, so simple in its execution, so vast in its dreamlike beauty. A love poem to poetry itself. Light-hearted at its core.

    The light-heartedness comes from the nature of the interactions of the characters, never leading with malice or hate; situations where you'd normally feel threat end up with a respectful and pleasant conversation. This really stuck out for me. Paying attention…

    I can't tell you how
    I knew - but I did know that I had crossed
    The border. Everything I loved was lost
    But no aorta could report regret.
    A sun of rubber was convulsed and set;
    And blood-black nothingness began to spin
    A system of cells interlinked within
    Cells interlinked within cells interlinked
    Within one stem. And dreadfully distinct
    Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

    To say this was shot stylishly would be an understatement. Cinematography (especially that lighting), costumes, ultra-modernistic simple sets with super sharp contrasting lines. Thoroughly enjoyed these as they all combined into something beautiful to watch.


    A masterful conglomeration of theatre and film, which does feel unique, leaning towards it being a brand new medium.

    Continuing on what seems to be my silence-evoking-emotional-expression marathon, I should probably look at creating a list for all these gems of movies that focus on silence as the emotional driver of their plots. If I had to place and rank Sound of Metal somewhere in that list, I'd probably give it the top spot.

    This is a naturalistic, realistic, gut-wrenching movie about a man, a musician losing his hearing. Learning how to cope with it, during his deepest pits…

    Bravo. Truly another masterpiece from Tarkovsky.

    What really is science fiction? If not another way to dive deep into the human psyche, provide a bedrock for philosophical wanderings, an easy way to introduce what-ifs and how they affect our basic humanity through our interpersonal relationships. This is science fiction as it was first imagined - a metaphysical and philosophical medium. That is what the original Solaris novel by Stanislaw Lem strived for. This is what Tarkovsky managed to achieve as…
