This single film redefined what movies can be. Almost half my DVD collection was nearly dumped after my embrace of a very prolific and longest piece of celluloid to cross my path. My eyes were opened to the immensity of the Tarkovsky potential – the pentacle of poetic cinema. Not a film about an icon painter, but a collection of iconic human events torn through history at the edge of marauding legions from hell. Welcome ye of any faith.
