One of the most immersive and rarefied experiences in the history of cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guide - the "Stalker" of the title - leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumoured to fulfill one's most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work, his painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere by this vivid recent digital restoration.
