Solaris (1972) by Tarkovsky

Show Notes

This week, Matt and Cameron explore Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1972 film Solaris. They talk genre, they talk the meaning of the soul, and they draw a couple points from — hold on, what do you mean he wrote a book about it? I did all this research and he just…he just wrote a book? Okay, that’s fine. Well, they’ll cover what he has to say, where they agree and disagree, and what it means to become human.

Major themes: The only genre is film, ears: the road to the soul, “just be happy doing chores”

02:43 - 1968, not 1969.
