To each his own, but I just love those long scenes with nothing happening.
Have you ever made it through the Stalker? To me that one is opposite... slow, but empty.
Something often *is* happening but you either see it or you don't. Or something previously happened and the stillness is giving you time to contemplate what just happened. Of all Tarkovsky's films, Stalker was the one where I felt like I wasn't seeing it, or there was a joke I wasn't getting. But it's also the one I have only seen once.
My wife liked Stalker for some reason yet fell asleep twice trying to watch Solaris. Both times it was during the freeway scene near the beginning.
