SOLARIS (1972) is the perfect movie of SOMA

Has someone here already watched this russian sci-fi classic by Andrei Tarkowski?

The thematics are exactly what SOMA is about. You might think this movie has been used as an inspiration for SOMA. It doesn't play under water but the story has a lot of connections.

The questions about what we are, from where we come and why, and what it means to be a human. A mysterious planet that seems to consist of brain mass like a structural gel can be used to make copies of ourselves.

Is our reality only a simulation? In slow pictures this movie builds up a deep atmosphere that is scary in a very unique way. It is not a horror movie but it uses elements of horror way much deeper than conventional alien cliche. There are no monsters or such things, instead the scary stuff is the story itself.

SOLARIS manages to create a very powerful impact of magic. Much better than Stanley Kubrick's "2001". Tarkowski is a genius of movie making.



Now I will watch Tarkowski's next sci-fi classic "Stalker" (1979) which also is literally one of the best movies ever made.
