contra-killah: Hi, I just wanted to say that I appreciate and love your blog, but in particular the Andrei Tarkovsky post. I don know why I clicked it but I just did, and well I just want to thank you, after reading that, after having lived through a never ending existential crisis of my own, this finally made me feel a little bit of hope for myself in this world. I know they weren't your words, but I believe some credit is due to you. Once again, thank you.

Thank you for vocalizing your thoughts, I appreciate that. I’m sure we’ve all felt a similar longing at some point and it’s good to hear the article had that effect. It is interesting to see these renown directors’ work interpreted this way, where often their images are taken solely at face value. There is an uncompromising morality to their films, an auteurship, which is inspiring.

"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.
