Considered one of the greatest films ever made, Andrei Tarkovsky‘s sci-fi classic “Stalker” is FINALLY making its way to disc with the Criterion Collection earlier this week announcing the newly remastered film will get a Criterion edition available on DVD and Blu-ray in July.
Tarkovsky’s seminal 1979 science fiction masterpiece in which twenty years ago a falling object decimated a provincial Russian town, and those who later went near the crash site – now known as The Zone – disappeared.
Access is strictly prohibited, but outsiders can still get in with the help of a ‘stalker.’ Inside The Zone is The Room, within which secret wishes can be granted.
Those in New York can see the film at the Lincoln Center where it will begin a theatrical run of the film’s new edition beginning on May 5th. Check out the trailer for the re-release below:
