10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Paul Johnston on March 8, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is an absolutely fascinating read for any Tarkovsky fan. It gives a real insight into the individual films but more significantly it also helps you understand much better where Tarkovsky himself was coming from. It will also be of interest to people interested in modern cinema, but it is probably best to have seen most of Tarkovsky's films first (there are only about 7 of them). One amusing aspect of the book is seeing different interviewers ask the same, often stupid, questions over a twenty-year period. However, there is plenty of rich material in the book so the repeated questions do not really detract from it, indeed, it is amusing to watch how Tarkovsky deals with them in different times and different contexts.

Format: Hardcover
This collection is very well edited and well conceived. It fills the gap between Sculpting in Time and books about the director by various authors. I would consider this and Tarkovsky's own book as the two essential texts. Also, a few very funny, antagonistic answers to interview questions make for great reading. You're unlikely to finish this book and still wonder why some crew members found it difficult to work with him.

Format: Paperback
This is a good book and many of the interviews are excellent but to be honest I was expecting more. There isn't much commentary on the interviews themselves they are just presented as they are.

I ordered at the same time this book and the more famous "Sculpting in Time", written by Tarkovsky himself. I've already written reviews about other titles of this University Press of Mississippi series, and I stick to those comments this time: Because of the complexities and subtleties of Tarkovsky's ideas when he talked about his films, this work is actually the best complement you can find to Tarkovsky's posthumous book. A god book if you want to study what some people define as "transcendental films".
I had a problem with my order though: I received a first copy with a page completely ripped off, and I still had to pay 10 dls for a second copy to be sent from Miami to my home in Colombia. I would have liked a little bit more responsibility from amazon, since I've been a regular customer for a couple of years without being a pain in the *ss.
