“A man writes because he is tormented, because he doubts. He needs to constantly prove to himself and the others that he’s worth something. And if I know for sure that I’m a genius? Why write then? What the hell for?” – Stalker

Stalker was a 1979 movie by Andrey Tarkovskiy that really stretches conventions in its portrayal of three men lost in Soviet era Russia. It’s a bizarre tale, but has some really poignant moments, and I highly recommend watching it some afternoon when you don’t have anything else to do. It’s powerful, if mysterious, and has some interesting things to say about humans and our (in)humanity.
