8:30pm Stalker Tarkovsky’s greatest film embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guide leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumoured to fulfill one’s most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel, and making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work, his painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere further enriched by this vivid new digital restoration. "At a certain point the audacious claim is made that the reason we were put on earth was to create works of art. By the same token, it's not enough to say that Stalker is a great film - it is the reason cinema was invented." The Guardian
