USSR | 1972 | Andrei Tarkovsky
Andrei Tarkovsky’s philosophical sci-fi epic has long been regarded as the Soviet 2001: A Space Odyssey. (Tarkovsky, a Christian, reputedly made it as a response to the “atheism” of the Kubrick film.) The movie follows a psychologist who is sent to a distant space station to learn what is killing some of the cosmonauts there and causing others to see visions. The key seems to be the nearby, “sentient” planet of Solaris.
