In a vaguely defined near-future dystopia, dissidents seeking a new life hire knowledgeable "stalkers" to guide them into the forbidden region called the Zone. Based on a story by the celebrated sci-fi writers the Strugatsky brothers, the trancey, atmospheric STALKER holds cult status within Tarkovsky's oeuvre, a subtle but powerful parable that makes use of contemporary architecture settings, disused industrial sites and evocative sound design to conjure up an all-too-recognizable future world. DIR Andrei Tarkovsky; SCR Arkady and Boris Strugatzky, from their novel "Roadside Picnic"; PROD Aleksandra Demidova. USSR, 1979, color/b&w, 161 min. In Russian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
