THE SCHOOL OF TARKOVSKY PART 25: MOVING IMAGERY

From the resurrection of dead lovers (Blade Runner 2049 & Pet Sematary) and the calming ambiance of nature (The Mountain, Nymphomaniac, Mandy, etc), to exploring the arthouse staple of the "mystique" surrounding horses on film (way too many titles to name) - below are more examples of scenes from films that remind me of the work of Andrei Tarkovsky.
While there are self-proclaimed "Tarkovsky students" represented below (Lars Von Trier & Ilya Khrzhanovsky), this entry of "The School Of..." shows more filmmakers that aren't often associated with Tarkovsky's work (Rick Alverson, Denis Villeneueve, Alex Garland, etc), so I'm fully aware that some of these similarities are completely coincidental.
