Had Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris hanging around my house for about a month, couldn’t seem to
finish it but then I got sick. Nothing like a cold to help you get through an introspective psychological
Russian sci-fi masterpiece. Anyway, it hit the spot. Was going to post a bunch of stills from his movies,
which are amazing, but then I came across all these Polaroids Tarkovsky took. Look at these instead!
Then go watch the Mirror. I will too.

    Way back when in Savannah, Adam and I watched “Solaris” with our dog, Castle. As we sat there, soaking it all in, we caught Castle watching the movie. Really watching it. We still talk about it.

    Seeing these polaroids – and the dogs in them – makes me think that there might even be more to that. Hmm. Neato.

      Nice! Castle has sophisticated tastes! From what little I know about Tarkovsky, it would seem that dogs were fairly significant symbols to him. They seem to appear quite often in his work, Solaris included. It’s time to write an essay! Also, Castle is an awesome name.
