I was sitting on a few more Tarkovsky comparisons that I thought I'd share with you all...

Ivan's Childhood / Biutiful

Ivan's Childhood / Loves Of A Blonde

I'm not going to even debate Andrei Tarkovsky's influence on Nuri Bilge Ceylan. I dedicated a whole series to his films (click here to read).

Here are a few comparisons that fell through the cracks...
Ivan's Childhood / Clouds Of May

Solaris / Once Upon A Time In Anatolia

The Mirror / Clouds Of May
Ivan's Childhood / Small Town

Ivan's Childhood / A Small Town

In addition to the comparisons above, I see pieces of Ivan's Childhood in quite a few modern films arthouse films...
Ivan's Childhood / Days Of Heaven
Ivan's Childhood / Life On Earth

Krivina is one of those random yet quietly brilliant films from the Toronto Film festival that most folks will probably never see. This is a shame because not only is Krivina really great, but it is undoubtedly a product of Tarkovsky's cinema from the slow contemplative pacing to the overall droning ambiance...
The Mirror / Krivina

I know Martin Scorsese is a cinephile (he practically grew up in movie theaters). He's openly referenced older films in his work before so it isn't out of line to think Tarkovsky left an impression on him. I'm skeptical that this comparison below is intentional but the similarities are pretty interesting...
The Mirror / Taxi Driver

Lodge Kerrigan (Claire Dolan) is from the school of Polanski & Akerman (his films are nothing like Tarkovsky)  But this shot from his film below is quite reminiscent of Tarkovsky's work...
