My first ever impressions were somewhere between Telefon and Red Heat! Both American movies depicting Russia during their cold war... no one was ever gonna push the button, too much at stake! But it makes for great entertainment.
Sadly it makes for stereotypes, bias and ‘soft’ propaganda!!
This movie #STALKER directed by Andrei #Tarkovsky has more clout, is it a metaphor for a people wrestling with a country in turmoil and inner confusions about which way is up or down. A sci-fi classic, an inspiration, but also a very poetic reflection of life in Soviet Russia? Remember, it is still entertainment! An exaggeration... i love this movie, because it moved me.
When I was in Russia, I only thought of it once. And that was at the airport when I arrived. We are all #voyeurs we are all #storytellers ...go to the heart of it and find out for yourselves.
