THE SCHOOL OF TARKOVSKY PART 20: MOVING IMAGERY

I keep thinking I've run out of comparisons to the films of Tarkovsky but here we are.

Enjoy...

The Sacrifice / Broken Flowers

Andrei Rublev / Broken Flowers


Solaris / Fallen Angels


The sleeping family...
Stalker / Poltergeist 

The Sacrifice / Sonatine

Given Lars Von Trier's fascination with Tarkovsky early on in his career, I'm convinced the ending of his student film; Image Of Relief was a reference to the opening scene of Ivan's Childhood...
Rising figures in Ivan's Childhood & Image Of Relief


Ivan's Childhood /
Come & See


Solaris / Claire Dolan

Again - not only did Alexander Sokurov know Tarkovsky personally, but he has openly praised his work and sited him as an influence since the start of his career so I'm willing to bet this comparison below is pretty on point...
Solaris / Mother & Son

Stalker / Annihilation

Solaris / Miami Vice


and more Malick/Tarkovsky comparisons...
Ivan's Childhood /
Tree Of Life

Ivan's Childhood / The New World


The Mirror / Fire Walk With Me


Ivan's Childhood / The Spirit Of The Beehive
Solaris / Morvern Callar
The Mirror / The Turin Horse
