Solaris (1972) - Movie Review (Repost)

Monday, June 19, 2017

A psychologist is sent to a station orbiting a distant planet in order to discover what has caused the crew to go insane. (IMDB)

I loved how this film utilized more than one film type (black & white, sepia etc). The acting was fantastic and the birthday party scene left me in awe. The score blends in well and gives one a sense of something being very wrong. There is also an awful lot of silence, or almost silence and long sequences that to me seemed like the director was trying too hard to be artsy. Overall though, it is an incredible movie if you do not mind the slow first half and a definite must for anyone who is into the art of cinematography.

Rating: 7/10
