Andrei Tarkovsky was one of the greatest of the Soviet film makers, and one of the greatest directors of all time. His films are particularly noted for their exquisite correlation of music and image. Let's start with Tarkovsky's 1979 masterpiece, Stalker. The films tells the story of a man who gives forbidden tours to desperate men of a radioactive Zone, where aliens were said to have landed.

The central theme is in Tarkovski's 1966 epic masterpiece, Andrei Rublev, is a sound - the sound of the bell that calls the Christian community together in prayer.

For those who think that genuine Christians were oppressed in the Soviet Union. Of course, fake Christians like Pope John Paul II had some difficulties, but genuine Christians could get to the very heights of the arts - which they would be hard pressed to do in the Capitalist West.

Haven't seen this thread before!
Tarkovsky is really on a level far beyond any other filmmaker. His book 'Sculpting In Time' is a beautiful antidote to the Post Modernism which permeates almost all filmmaking since the 60's
Anyone interested 'Christian' Films should check this guy out.
