The Stalker discussion thread.
Because it kind of got buried, Kev mentioned the Russian film, Stalker, in the trivia post. Strangely, I have actually watched this film, with a Russian no less who was, ironically, a stalker. Same director as the original Solaris, if I remember correctly. Very interesting Kubrick-esque direction, though unnecessarily, ponderously slow in many, many places. Though that irritated me at the time, it stuck with me and in hindsight I realize I liked it, though I don't completely understand it all. What was with the ending? Could it be remade into a film watchable to Western audiences? (yes) Should it be? Discuss.
