A hired guide—the “Stalker” of the title—leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumored to fulfill one’s most deeply held desires. Making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work. At once a religious allegory, a reflection of contemporary political anxieties, and a meditation on film itself.

In Russian with English subtitles.
