"Andrei Rublev" (1966)


I hadn't seen "Andrei Rublev" in a long while- probably twenty years. This is because, for one thing, it's difficult to find, but more so it's such a viscerally memorable movie- absolutely terrifyingly violent and yet simultaneously so poetic and beautifully made by Tarkovsky that it's overwhelming seen too often. It's a movie not to get too used to.

Thinking of Andre Rublev and Tarkovsky's "Solaris" (1972) and the palpable yet surreal, dream-like qualities of both- one medieval, one in the future Sci-Fi, I think he was a greater emotionally subtle director then Bergman. It's worth watching once without the subtitles to concentrate on the ambience of the brilliant B&W photography. Color would've ruined it.

Solaris next!
