Reviews - What do customers think about Andrei Tarkovsky (Pocket Essential series)?
Great for Tark Fans but Needs Better Edition Aug 9, 2006
This is great summary of the life and works of Tarkovsky. His life, thoughts about film, and summaries of his movies are included in separate chapters as well as few useful appendices.
I only wish it wasn't a cheap mass market paperback. This is the kind of book you want to have around for years. Too bad it will probably yellow and fall off the spine in 10 years like most cheap editions.
