Review: Andrei Rublev, 1966, dir. Andrei Tarkovsky

Hello! I’m back from vacation. Vacation is why I’m behind on sharing and posting my work. Don’t look at me like that. I’m entitled to go on vacation. Deal with it.

Anyways: Here’s Andrei Rublev. There’s a new restoration of Andrei Rublev running in New York City, at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, courtesy of Janus Films. I’m not sure I agree that Andrei Rublev is “the greatest arthouse film ever,” but it’s up there, and it’s a masterpiece, and if you’re in NYC, you should go NY-see it. (Bet you missed my amazing dad jokes, yeah?)

If you’re not in NYC, don’t worry, Criterion’s dropping a Blu ray in September. Rule to live by: If Janus releases a movie in theaters, that means they’re adding it to their library. Duh. 

Long story short, I wrote about Andrei Rublev for The Playlist and reflected on its enduring relevance.
