Overview

With luscious film stills and superb essays by the director and his admirers, this is the essential Tarkovsky compendium

Between 1962 and 1986, Andrey Tarkovsky (1932-86) directed seven feature-length films, all acclaimed as masterpieces of cinema: Ivan’s Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Mirror, Stalker, Nostalgia and Sacrifice. Evading censorship and mounting pressure by Soviet authorities, Tarkovsky decided not to return to the Soviet Union after completing Nostalgia in Tuscany, three years before his death; his final film, Sacrifice, was shot in Sweden in 1985.
This new smaller-format edition of a 2012 publication was compiled and edited by Tarkovsky’s son Andrey Jr., along with film historian and critic Hans-Joachim Schlegel and Lothar Schirmer. Beautifully designed and printed, Andrey Tarkovsky: Life and Work pays homage to a great visionary who produced poetic and sometimes disturbing images of near biblical intensity through his films. Featuring stills from each of his films, a selection of his influential writings, private photographs from the family album, as well as Polaroids from Russia and Italy, it is buttressed with comments from prominent voices who have commented on Tarkovsky’s work and personality, including Jean-Paul Sartre, Ingmar Bergman and Aleksandr Sokurov.

Reviews
Andrey Tarkovsky: Life and Work succeeds in compressing the late Russian director's monumental legacy into portable form-a slender volume a pilgrim could easily slip into a backpack. The book succeeds in dis-tilling Tarkovsky's sound-and-visionary, contrarian essence with an approach that is at once capacious and compact: It's more imagistic gospel than cata-logue, more consecrated poetry than academic contextualization.–Howard Hampton "Bookforum"
