One Day in the Life of Andrei Arsenevitch
Time Out saysA documentary on one of cinema's masters by one of cinema's masters. This homage to Tarkovsky incorporates video footage Marker shot while the Russian lay dying in Paris in 1986, and a lengthy sequence from a year earlier, on location for the six-minute take at the climax of The Sacrifice. Marker is evidently enthralled by the orchestration of men, machines and elements. This brilliant, penetrating piece of film criticism won over even a Tarkovsky agnostic like myself as an illumination of the metaphysics of movie-making.
