Andrei Tarkovsky (1932–1986) was a Russian film director, screenwriter and film theorist. He directed several student films, co-directed a documentary, and was the author of numerous screenplays, both for his own films and for those of other directors. He directed two stage plays and one radio production, played minor acting roles in several films, and wrote a book on film theory.

Andrey Tarkovsky, William Powell. His non-realistic, highly-charged images are a continuing source of inspiration - not only for a new generation of film-makers, but also for poets, musicians and painters. This volume collects his great works for the first time in one volume, as well as three of his unproduced screenplays

Collected Screenplays by Andrei Tarkovsky (translated by William Powell and Natasha Synessios, Faber and Faber, 1999). I look to eventually owning all his works but have limited funds at the time. I have seen Solaris, Andrei Rublev, The Mirror, and Stalker. The Films of Andrei Tarkovsky: A Visual Fugue by Vida T Johnson and Graham Petrie. A chapter for each film and much more, quite interesting IMO. Top.

Since his death, Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-86) has become increasingly recognized as one of the true masters of world cinema. In the Soviet Union of his era, where the collective was of the utmost importance, Tarkovsky dared to create his own provocatively original style of filmmaking. His nonrealistic, highly charged images continued to be a source of inspiration-not only for a new generation of filmmakers but also for poets, musicians, and painters-even after he defected to the West, where Nostalgia was shot in Italy in 1983. His last film, The Sacrifice, was filmed in Sweden with Ingmar Bergman's collaborators. This volume collects his great works, including Solaris, Mirror, Stalker, Nostalgia, The Sacrifice, and Ivan's Childhood. These scripts deepen and expand our understanding of Tarkovsky's films, for they map out the early stages and personages (some never embodied on the screen) and help to clarify the obscure characters, images, and sequences that are so central to this great filmmaker's unique work.

Before going to see a Shakespeare play, I always read the play first, as doing so always enhances the experience. I never thought I'd say that about a film maker; but there was never another film maker like Tarkovsky.

Reading these scripts, which are both highly cerebral and intensely visual, gives one the rare, intimate pleasure of watching genius at work: and the unproduced scripts will give the imaginative reader a rich experience.

To my experience, only Antonioni's That Bowling Alley on the Tiber matches this work for sheer cinematic brilliance in book form. This won't be an inexpensive purchase for anyone. But it is a precious one.

First, this collection does NOT include the Andrei Rublev script, printed separately and in great need of a reprint. Here you will find all of Tarkovsky's other scripts, including two unreleased ones. Scripts contain some omitted and alternate scenes. Indispensable for the Tarkovsky fan.

In "Sculpting in Time" Tarkovsky says: "The literary element in a film is *smelted*; it ceases to be literature once the film has been made." Reading his screenplays, one has the sense of looking at a blueprint or a musical score. The two strongest elements of Tarkovsky's artistry--the extraordinary visuals, and the highly original conception of time--are necessarily missing.
So what is the value of this collection? For one thing, it includes the scripts of several unrealized projects, which allow you to imagine what these films might have looked like, or just to regret that they were never made. Similarly, you'll also find ideas and scenes that didn't make it into the finished films, or were altered from their original conception. The book also, in an indirect way, points out the relentlessly visual and indiosyncratic nature of AT's work. For example, reading the script of "Stalker", perhaps AT's most mesmerizing film, I thought that it could easily have been made into an episode of "Twilight Zone" by a lesser director. In other words, the plot is not the point; what makes the film a masterpiece lies beyond words and storylines. I suppose the same could be said for any great director, but with Tarkovsky I feel this even more strongly. Finally, the book also includes a fair amount of analysis and commentary. One serious omission: "Andrei Rublev" is not included, due to its length.
For these reasons, I recommend this book not to Tarkovsky neophytes, but to those who already know his films. The genius is up there on the screen; this book contains the sketches, jottings and blueprints that helped to put it there.

Unanimously hailed by the intellectual crowd as the greatest poet of modern cinema Tarkovsky's Collected Screenplays provides a blueprint into the mind of this genius. The density of his films typically filled with a cannon of symbolism and metaphors are revealed to us in a new light through his screenplays by lucid and coherent writing providing yet a distinctly new approach in understanding and appreciating his deeply felt themes on life. Without the element of time so inherent in film, the ability to rest on a thought or a remark by this incredible film-maker is what makes reading this book such a pleasure. In addition to this book I would recommend Sculpting in Time.

Just saw The Stalker last night. Possibly the best movie I've seen in my life. Tarkovsky is a master of magic/symbolism/the human condition. No wonder he was Bergman's favourite. I really look forward to reading this book.
