5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond my measure, October 19, 2002
This review is from: The Sacrifice (DVD)
Much like the literature of James Joyce, the filmmaking of Andery Tarkovsky is in my opinion, beyond measure of good or bad, points or grades.
In truth, I am not the right person to grade this film, deliver it a rightful verdict or call it rewarding or degrading words. I am not a film scholar, and though a great fan of Tarkovsky having seen all his released films, I can not give this film the words I truly deserves.
Holding this in mind, I still proceed.
The one thing that troubles me when I observe, view and think about anything that director Tarkovsky produced, is whether or not I should call it film / movie, or art.
"The Sacrifice", his last - and most artful - project is, as all film by Tarkovsky, about the slowest and most long drawn one can choose to watch, thus making it a film that is not aimed at a populist audience. This is not a question of plot, it is a question of and cinematography, acting in line and in cohesion with environment, Nykvist's photography (some of the best he ever produced) and individuals, together making, art.
If this scares You, remember what You have read and know that this might not be a film for everyone.
If You know Tarkovsky You know what this "film" is all about, but remember to keep an open mind. It is one of those film that deserves multiple observations before You lay your preliminary verdict.
"The Sacrifice" is not among the best films I have seen, but I can assure you that it is one, if not the most, beautiful. It is beyond points and grades, being that one seldom grades pieces of art.
