Andrei Tarkovsky, Stalker, 1979

One of the most enigmatic films ever made about time, Stalker depicts an expedition led by the Stalker, an outlaw able to safely navigate the decayed landscape of the Zone, to visit the Room where visitors innermost and unconscious desires are fulfilled. The Stalker plus the Writer and the Scientist become pilgrims walking a slow, desolate quest for hidden truth. 

Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky. 161mins, 1979, Russia
