I see Тарковский is becoming a subject of interest outside of post-Soviet states, again.

Solaris is one of the only films labeled as "science fiction" that clearly fulfills the true meaning of the genre. How the human desire and will, shift through a situation where according to our terms breaches the everyday activity. That when one is dealt with a "science fiction" situation it always takes the back seat to how the character succumbs to their own human condition within that situation or happening. This is a great quick essay that shows Tarkovsky's in-depth poetics and crafting of time and space, the film truly captures the spirit of humanity and shows us what "science fiction" really means.
