Andrei Tarkovsky’s first film made outside the Soviet Union led not to a burst of freedom but a consolidation of themes and stylistic tics: dreams, mystic attempts at saving the world, standing and trickling water, et al. But the director remained one of the foremost poets of the screen, and several sequences astound with their uncanny beauty and profundity. РLee Gardner
