Solaris Dirigida por Andrei Tarkovsky
It has so many sequences that are unique and unforgettable, like the part where the characters float in the library or when the wife comes back to life and then breaks apart as if she were made of glass. And there’s the idea of this spaceship floating on top of a strange ocean that seems to have some form of consciousness. All of those ideas are so strange and beautiful.

In adapting Lem’s book, Tarkvosky develops a complex structure of flashbacks, dream sequences, and fantasies that are at times indistinguishable from the ‘actual’ events of the plot, and alternates between color and black-and-white cinematography to further alienate us from the narrative flow.

For a movie set primarily on a half-abandoned space station, Tarkovsky’s third film is more about the tangled webs of human memory, consciousness, and the lasting impressions of guilt and grief than rocketships, alien probes or even aliens themselves… Colorful, strange, brooding and evocative, Russia’s answer to 2001: A Space Odyssey reaches its climax in the enigmatic final scene. Is true existence only in the mind? If so, does that make it less important?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Solaris

    Tarkovsky's most well-known film. I can picture the Soviets saying "The great Tarkovsky will make a better spaceship movie than the Americans!" If they edited out all the spaceship parts and just had the water-as-subconscious element, it would have been way better. But I think he was commissioned to make a spaceship movie. Admittedly, I'm biased; I don't enjoy spaceship movies. I love Andrei Tarkovsky, tho

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Solaris

    Maybe the only flawed Tarkovsky film, yet so divinely mystical throughout that the ultimate taste is one of awe and wonder. As a thesis on the 'Decline of the West'(Occidental instrumental reason) it is alarmingly relevant but also can be easily contested. Yet, its ample Bergmanesque moments (e.g. the midget as the inverse of scientific will-to-power) establish a cinematic program of the spiritual and the maternal.

  • Ghostman's rating of the film Solaris

    What does it mean to be human? To be alive? To know another person? To know yourself? What is the purpose of knowledge? What is human progression if we are so technologically advanced but we do not know what is within? How can we reach for the stars & understand what is alien to us if we do not even know & respect each other? If we don't even know or respect ourselves? Solaris is a grand masterpiece of world cinema.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Solaris

    I prefer the Soderbergh version, which connects the thematic dots more concisely & carries a much greater emotional weight. Tarkovsky's film is certainly of interest, specifically in how it evolves his key theme, memory. The absent wife, the childhood home, the dog, the mother, all find their way into later masterworks, Mirror & Nostalgia. A film full of profoundly beautiful moments amid scenes of arduous exposition.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Solaris

    Don't be confused by the sci-fi label. It's just a means towards a very fascinating end. It's about love. No one can duplicate the amazing talent of Tarkovsky, because he thinks like a poet. He truly is in a class by himself.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Solaris

    I find this film to be far superior to Kubrick's 2001. The visuals are absolutely stunning and the colors are so vibrant they practically jump off the screen. The hero is so tired looking that you really feel his exhaustion and the futuristic highway sequence is one of marvels of the cinema.

  • Lintang A.'s rating of the film Solaris

    "Solyaris" is an original approach to first contact and alien life-form in the cinema history. The story is disclosed in an extremely low-pace through a flawed screenplay that uses many ellipsis and poor art decoration, but beautifully raises philosophical questions about love, death, understanding, communication, fear for the unknown, origin of life, and might be the Paradise or even God. 9.5/10

  • ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Solaris

    Nonsensical trite. First, why are the home movies and the interview shot like the rest of the film? It breaks the immersion. Second, why would they allow these researchers to bring a fire arm on board? Third, it has no rhythm as it spouts 30 minutes of exposition and follows it with an instantaneous jump on the ship. Last, just because you threw in high brow references in your monster film does not make it deep.
