these rays of light... maybe a little try-hard

these rays of light… maybe a little try-hard

My second viewing. I find the issues of maturity and decency in extreme conditions beautiful and profound to explore, and Tarkovsky is definitely our man to take us through it. The characters are drawn clearly but openly, all flawed, all sympathetic, all tragic. It’s amusing to me how unsubtle and amateurish some of the stylization seemed compared with his later stuff, though even so his techniques and visuals are captivating.
