Welcome aboard the Magical Mystery Train, DAEvo!
I love Stalker, and Tarkovsky is one of my favorite filmmakers. In fact, I used to have my own little Tarkovsky festivals at home wherein I’d spend all day watching his films. Epic subconscious mind-benders! Although, I have to admit, his films put me in such an alpha state sometimes I fall asleep watching them. Great dreams though!
One of these days, Adam and I will do a podcast on or favorite filmmakers. Tarkovsky will definitely be on my list.
