Item description for Tarkovsky by Jean-Paul Sartre...

Tarkovsky provides a collection of accessible academic essays by leading film studies professionals. A challenging, broadly illustrated book that fully captures the essence of this cinematic pioneer.

Andrei Tarkovsky is the most influential Soviet filmmaker of the post-war era, and one of the world's most renowned cinematic geniuses. He created spiritual, existential films of incredible beauty, repeatedly returning to themes of memory, dreams, childhood and Christianity. His films, such as Solaris, Mirror, Nostalghia and The Sacrifice make use of long, unedited shots and wide angles in uncompromisingly formalistic statements that are as striking today as they were when they were first made.

Tarkovsky'simpressions  Sep 27, 2008
Tarkovsky's images, even when they are still, they do impress for ever, like the ones in our family's picture book.
Best Book on Tarkovsky  Sep 10, 2008
I was very excited to receive this book in the post the other day. It has a whole heap of large and beautiful images from Tarkovksy's movies. And it is also beautifully designed which makes the text easy to read. I have only read a couple of pieces so far (its a huge book) but the memoir section is amazing. The piece from the guy who worked on Stalker says a lot of interesting things - what a difficult production process and what a film! I own a number of books on Tarkovsky and I think this is by the far the most comprehensive and detailed. It goes deeper than the others and explores new territory, such as the other directors and artists that Tarkovsky is connected to. Some of the pieces deal with philosophy but they aren't hard going. I think this is the perfect book for someone who has seen one of Tarkovsky's movies and wants to get a sense of what they mean. Its not a short introduction thats for sure but I think its totally unique. Excellent and beautiful tome.
Tarkovsky Coffeetable book  Sep 5, 2008
Actually, I'm a little disappointed with this book. While it is big sized and full of fine pictures and good essays, I still miss something. I would have liked more pictures from the production of Tarkovsky's films, sketches and early concepts, and also more pictures from Stalker and Solaris. And also larger pictures. This may sound like complaining too much on a great book, but that's how I feel. 3.5 stars. My advise is: check it out inside before buying.
tarkovsky   Jul 27, 2008
an interesting collection of essays on tarkovsky. there are better books on him, i think.
Huge Book! Huge Talent!  Apr 18, 2008
I own several books on this unique Russian filmmaker, but was not prepared for the sheer size and content of this one. The book arrived in a box so big that I assumed had several books in. Though I have only started to scan through it, the photographs are amazing and the text is the kind one who seriously enjoys films can read. Not over done with "social content" or metaphor interpretations, but rather focuses on the real skill of making each film. Choice of camera work, writing, etc.

I look forward to getting through this book. Though is going to take some time!
