2001 had its counterpart in Russia where the legendary director Andrei Tarkovsky (Stalker, Andrei Rublev) created this stunning, unforgettable, poetic version of Stanislaw Lem’s science fiction novel. “This towering 1972 allegory takes place mostly on a space station near a mysterious planet that may be a living, thinking entity capable of sending phantoms from the past into its visitors’ minds. Some of the uncanny power surging through this visionary epic comes from changes Tarkovsky made to divert the attention of Soviet censors. Stands with the greatest science-fiction movies ever made”—David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor. “A dazzlingly imaginative work with special effects that bear comparison to those of 2001.”—L.A. Times. 1972. In Russian with English subtitles. Unrated. 165 Min..
