Solaris - The Criterion Collection
  • Description

    Ground control has been receiving strange transmissions from the remaining residents of the Solaris space station. When cosmonaut and psychologist Kris Kelvin is sent to investigate, he experiences the strange phenomena that afflict the Solaris crew, sending him on a voyage into the darkest recesses of his own consciousness. In Solaris, the legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky (Ivan’s Childhood, Andrei Rublev) gives us a brilliantly original science-fiction epic that challenges our conceptions about love, truth, and humanity itself.

Humans made

This is my first experience of this film. Picture quality top notch and sound ok (mono if I recall correctly). The story itself is somewhere between Spielberg's A.I. and Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Probably closer to A.I. but in Solaris humans are made by an outside force; a lingering cloud. Made from the minds of real humans. The movie is intensely philosophical and does lack movement since it stays on a space station. No journey involved here. Coupled with Russian language and reading sub-titles this can make for heavy going. On ten foot projection screen I did feel inside the space craft. Set design very important here. In the end it took two sittings for me fortunately it is in two Parts. An excellent 22page booklet is also included. In conclusion I am glad I have finally seen this movie but it really did not press a button for me.
