The best movies you probably never saw: Solaris

Post by Katiedot on Tue 13 Aug 2013, 13:06

While I'm not the world's greatest Solaris fan, gotta agree that this is worth watching.

Solaris (2002); Steven Soderbergh, director.

While 2011 was the first time Soderbergh came to SDCC (hawking Haywire, which could just as well be on this list) he was represented at the Con years earlier by none other than James Cameron.

Solaris sank a lot of dough down a black hole, but I don’t think anyone on the team had any misgivings about the film they were making. (And 20th Century Fox is not in the business of saying “no” to James Cameron.) As a result, we have that rarest of things – a thoughtful, inspired and intelligent science fiction film with state of the art effects. It’s a gorgeous looking (and sounding) film that, once you get on its wavelength, is mesmerizing. There are times when I think I prefer this (vastly shorter) version to the Andrei Tarkovsky original.

If you didn’t go and see it in the theater you owe society one.

Mysterium? It´s not about love, it´s about life, faith and spirituality, no?
Are you telling me there is no romance in this film?

I want romance.

I´ll look for it tonight, if it doesn´t contain romance/love
I will watch out of africa or something...Smile
