Best Andrei Tarkovsky movie.

Not alot of choices, but not easy to pick just one.

No, not an easy choice. I'm torn between The Mirror and Stalker.

Stalker was an extraordinary experience upon first viewing. But The Mirror, while quite opaque initially fell into an exquisite rhythm I had not seen before, and I feel the need for another viewing in order to fully process it. So I'll vote for Stalker, for now.

If we were talking best Tarkovsky sequence, then no doubt it's the bell-casting segment of Andrei Rublev.

And I highly recommend (if you can find it) Chris Marker's exploration of Tarkovsky "One Day in the Life Andrei Arsenevich".

Solaris is the only one I've seen. Though Andrei Rublev is still in my unwatched pile.

I've only seen Solaris although I plan to eventually see some others, particularly Andrei Rublev.

Andrei Rublev.

The Sacrifice is a close second.

The only one I haven't seen is Ivan's Childhood.

I can't possibly decide between Andrei Rublev and Stalker. They are two of the greatest films ever made.

I've only seen Solaris, Stalker and Nostalghia.

I voted for Solaris - I need to schedule Rublev and Sacrifice one of these days.

(1)Andrei Rublev
(2)The Sacrifice
(6)The Mirror
(7)Ivan's Childhood

They are all great and 1-4 are 5-star classics but Rublev I think is in a class by itself.

I just watched Stalker this morning and loved it. I've been meaning to pick up Solaris, but what movie of his would any of you recomend next based on my feelings about Stalker?
