"In the entire history of cinema there has never been a director, who has made such a dramatic stand for the human spirit as did Andrei Tarkovsky."
One of the more refreshing film analyses I’ve read recently. One that takes interest in the director and their interpretation/longing for the spiritual. With various articles based on their works and autobiographies; from Kurosawa, to Godard, to Tarkovsky. Once you get passed the web design it’s actually a great read.
