“This is a staggering, panoramic, epic masterpiece. If I could only have one film on a desert island, this would be it. It is mysterious, poetic, musical, thrilling, ultimately enigmatic, and deeply spiritual. …For me, the Michelangelo who towers above [many extraordinary directors], one of the great, great artists of the twentieth century, is that unique poet of the art of pure cinema, Tarkovsky.” –André Gregory, for The Criterion Collection.

This 1960’s Soviet film is loosely based on the life of Andrei Rublev, an iconic 15th Century Russian painter, who faced challenges that many artists during this repressive regime encountered.  Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, the film features Anatoly Solonitsyn and Irma Raush.
