Electric Sheep article

Review of 'Stalker' for Electric Sheep -

With all of the late Andrei Tarkovsky's films recently released in DVD and Blu Ray box sets Electric Sheep have spent the last month looking at the individual films that make up his lasting legacy. My contribution to this celebration is a review of his masterpiece Stalker. It's difficult to do justice to Tarkovsky's films as they really need to be experienced, pondered over and watched again. If you haven't seen Stalker you really should, as soon as possible. Every now and again a film comes along that changes the very nature of cinema and how audiences subsequently look at the real world, this is one of them.
