Solaris (1972)




Some odd reports have been coming from astronauts stationed on the planet Solaris, so someone is sent to check things out.

A philosophical treatise in science fiction clothing, this movie is drained of emotion, and it moves at a snail's pace. Still, it remains compelling, even though it sometimes stops dead in its tracks so its characters can discuss the meaning of life.

Its mystifying philosophical dialogue calls to mind Samuel Beckett's Waiting For Godot, and elements of style and atmosphere recall Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Its setting recalls both.

There was so much to take in that I may need to see it again to do it justice.


I like doggies.
