The Movie: Solaris (1972)
What Is It?: Andrei Tarkovsky crafts an adaptation of Stanislaw Lem’s novel about an astronaut experiencing hallucinations aboard a space station that has Kubrick’s scale and ability to stir awe and Bergman’s intimacy and inscrutability. Say adios to your heart, because Solaris will wrench it out.
Why Today?: Today is International Astronomy Day.
