Free Tarkovsky Films online

Andrei Rublev and Stalker available for viewing online via Open Culture

Recall that Andrei Rublev was on the list of 100 top films, I recently referenced here.

Stalker

and

Andrei


Rublev

The downside--I don't see subtitles--you may need to speak or read Russian to enjoy them.

Comments

  1. I'm still on a modem, so I can't view them online. However, I did rent both on DVDs and enjoyed the experience.

  2. Dear Fred,

    I've seen Andrei Rublev, but have not had the pleasure of Stalker, so I suppose I must take the time to seek it out and enjoy.

  3. Steven,

    If you are interested, you might also read the novel that _Stalker_ was loosely based on--_Roadside Picnic_ by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. It's a short novel, approximately only 150 pages. I did a writeup on both.

  4. Dear Fred,

    Ah then, I thought the story sounded familiar, and now I know why. Thank you!

  5. Steven,

    A more recent novel with a related theme--an area where weird things happen and weird things are found-- is M. John Harrison's _Nova Swing_.
