Guess what I was watching tonight... actually I watched Tarkovsky's Solaris last night, along with the American re-make with that just-arrested at Sudanese protest, the arresting George Clooney (while a great sight better to look at, sorry George, and Steven Soderbergh, the director of the re-make, Tarkovsky's film remains a small masterpiece). Tonight it was the interviews with those who worked in and on the film with Tarkovsky. Amazing insights, and I couldn't grasp it all and will watch again. I completely fell for Tarkovsky many years ago, when I first saw Nostalighia, which became my favourite film for the next 20 years, and is still among my all-time favourites.
To say something about Solaris? What in death doesn't die...
( a line from my prosepoem, Whaleskin, sorry, it rose, so I said it)
