Страсти по Андрею

Andrei Tarkovsky União Soviética, 1966

Jason's rating of the film Andrei Rublev

When I first saw ANREI RUBLEV as a teenager in the 90s I can confess to having been quite categorically transported by it. It seemed to have arrived from another realm and precipitated a spiritual experience born of a kind of profound defamiliarization. I experience it differently as a man nearly forty. It strikes me now as a sublime testament to creative industry and something nearer a documentary on its own making.
