In Reply to: RE: "I am semi-obsessed with Solaris and Mirror," And for good reason posted by Victor Khomenko on April 09, 2021 at 05:50:36
put it above Kubrick's "2001." "Mirror," indeed, was far quieter.
I'd argue that "Andrei Rublev" is his greatest work, having far more important thematic development and a sweeping, "War and Peace" breadth. Cinematographically, it is magnificent, with few equals.
They were predisposed to love anything that came out of that shithole.
Make no mistake about it - much of Tarkovsky's art was imitating the great Western one. His adoration of Bergman, to the point of working with Sven Nykvist - all are derivative to various degrees.
As far as your comments, many emigrants from former repressive regimes, for whatever reason, end up hating not just the political conditions they fled, but also the entire culture they view as tainted. Some go so far as to hate the people themselves whom they feel are wholly responsible. This loathing can extend to themselves or, in an odd reversal, to a feeling of great superiority to all those other horrible millions they left behind.
