As a whole this is probably my least favorite Tarkovsky ( still haven’t seen The Sacrifice) but this has some incredible set pieces and nails the dream like hypnotic shots better than ever. Also pretty creepy !!!
Just campy enough to be funny but still spooky. Shelly is by far the ugliest character to ever grace a feature film. The stoners were another favorite still smoking down their joints even in the midst of death.
