For everyone else. Meh. Reply Timothy O'Neill January 20, 2019 Great video thesis, I’ve had similar thoughts about art in general, I can’t fathom how this guy slipped under my radar for so long, I’m as old as his films damn it, anyway, thank you and YouTube for putting it in my recommendation box. I will definitely find and watch these movies before dying from this shitty word, hell these films seem to be cheery by comparison to the real world Reply EC January 22, 2019 If you like Tarkovskij, you can find some of his movies (like The mirror, Stalker, Solaris, Andrej Rublew) with English subs on Mosfilm's official channel.Here is the link of, for example, The mirror:https://youtu.be/9Yn9q25NWAw Reply Joseph Harder January 26, 2019 It is not so much "nihilism" as it is Christian, "panentheistic" mysticism. Malick is the American Tarkovsky. Reply ozziexozzie January 28, 2019 A wild Zizek appeared! Reply Катя Панянка February 14, 2019 Спасибо вам за это. Thank you so much for you great and gorgeous work!

So grateful to you ❤🖖 Reply Jasmin Dan March 18, 2019 How beautiful Reply Harshith Shridhar March 20, 2019 I have enjoyed the works of many autuers. But Tarkovsky's STALKER was one hell of experience.Those extreme long takes & ambiguous narrative style. Ugh! Reply Isaac Dweck March 24, 2019 Fucking genius this guy was Reply Adam Smith March 24, 2019 this analysis of meaning is very nice looking but unfortunately quite inaccurate in my opinion. tarkovsky had symbols in his films, especially stalker. he is orthodox christian but he lived under a government that was very hostile towards it. there are however mysteries in his films but that doesnt mean mysteries mean just "anything" as is defined by materialist/platonic thinking. orthodox view life like this, how the narrator says in this video, but there is a logical, philosophical and theological foundation behind it. many if not every single scene cited in this video about meaning or message is delivering a message similar to those familiar of orthodox christian teaching, especially in the russian tradition. lovely video either way! Reply Color Grading Master March 24, 2019 Шикарно! Reply Q Rated March 24, 2019 Žižek talking about Tarkovsky, I'd love to know which lecture or speech it was from Reply Mr. Kyle Miles March 26, 2019 It’s absolutely amazing Reply XTASY March 27, 2019 Kurosawa always brings texture to his shots too, using environment like in a haiku. Reply Виталий Милонов March 28, 2019 Tarkovsky is not overrated but he is definitely overpraised and overhyped. Unsurprisingly, nobody's talking about his conflicts with operators, conflicts with screen writers, nobody even tries to mention acting or unjustifiedly big budgets. Who cares, it's just ancient foreign cinematography – it's rather permanently genius or unknowable due to language barriers. Keep pretending that subtext doesn't exist. Reply Vinay K April 5, 2019 When you can hear the rain, you know it's a Tarkovsky film.

It's really great you are doing this! Reply Feona Lee Jones April 18, 2019 Would be interesting to see what your take is on how he alters TIME through visual footage Reply Venkat Gella April 18, 2019 LongLive.Pls direct movies already. Reply MaximusNYC April 20, 2019 I like what this video says about Tarkovsky's use of textures and long takes. But I disagree that he is a "narrative nihilist". His narratives are intuitively constructed, true. But they're not without meaning. He, like Lynch, was understandably cagey about there being single "correct" readings of his films — that's a wise position for an artist to take. But you can pretty clearly discern meanings which line up with Tarkovsky's stated philosophical concerns. For example, the opening scene of Andrei Rublev is very consistent with the rest of the film's focus on the lonely creative and spiritual struggle of the artist (a frequent theme in his films). Reply Lucy Alice April 28, 2019 I love your voice. I NEED to watch more of Tarkovsky. Reply ikmarchini May 3, 2019 Bravo! Cogent and insightful. Reply Kyle Shiflet May 8, 2019 Tarkovsky behind Kubrick are my favorite Directors each for a different reason Kubrick for his unapologetic views of humanity and how we dehumanize each other barely any hope but Andrei Tarkovsky had a more poetic look at humanity Reply Elio Scala May 9, 2019 Does anyone know where to watch or where to get original Tarkovsky movies with English/German subtitles??

Reply Bond James Bond June 29, 2019 When I see tarkovskis movies my heart starts palpitating and I feel like I am high on weed or shrooms . No kidding it feels so unreal . Never felt that with any other filmakers work Reply I. Rex June 30, 2019 Thank you for this. This was really helpful. Tarkovsky for me has always been an alluring mystery. this fifteen minute video helped me understand that mystery more then years of reading about his movies and being lecture to by my high minded cinema snob friends ever did. Reply Jason Moore July 15, 2019 Tarkovsky and Mallick are two of the greatest directors of all time.

Reply Парабам Турункул September 26, 2019 do Russian subtitles pls Reply Tom Martin October 1, 2019 There is no meaning to existence. Why should there be meaning? Reply Nick Pastorino October 2, 2019 "Art symbolizes the meaning of our existence."- Andrei Tarkovsky Reply the Q&A October 11, 2019 When a work of art has no intended meaning, and the interpretation is left entirely open to the audience, I tend to feel it’s all vanity. Like, what’s the point? If you’re not trying to tell me something, why are you saying anything? There may be the case in which a work of art is simply an expression of the artist’s mind, but in this case the artist is not merely making something without a point but is sharing their perspective, which is something more definitive that may be enriching or challenging to the audience in some way. But something made with no intended meaning feels, frankly, like a waste. On the other hand, there may be expressions of the subconscious that do have some meaning, perhaps even a meaning that can be shared between the artist and the audience, that is yet imperceptible because it’s subconscious. But in this case I wonder, how can we know if a particular subconscious “meaning” that we’re sharing isn’t something bad or false, something we should be suppressing or overcoming rather than reveling in and expressing? Exposing it could be the first step to overcoming it, but if it’s something that remains imperceptible, how can we make a judgment about it either way, whether it’s good or bad, true or false? Reply Andrea Visentin October 11, 2019 Could anyone tell me which movie is it that at 12:45? Reply Muerete Flanders October 12, 2019 This might be one of the best, if not the best, insight into Tarkovsky's films and art that I've ever seen. Thank you!
