The Sci-Fi Slob
Stalker is a very complex film, however, its plot is very simple: a man living in a desolate and miserable industrial Russian town, promises two men (a writer and a professor), that he will guide them to the center of a forbidden area known as 'The Zone' to find a room which can apparently grant wishes.
Captain Spaulding
The mysterious power of the Zone held me within its grip and kept me enthralled until, like the characters in the film, I began to lose hope.
The Gunslinger45
Plus the camera movements look like I felt like I was watching a painting being made as opposed to a film being watched.
