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.

Watched Mirror again over Christmas, the purest of cinema-as-poetry. Difficult but immensely rewarding. One of the greatest poetic and sensual filmmakers in history. The first time I saw a Tarkovsky film it annihilated my view of the Soviet Union. I was shocked that this kind of deeply Christian, spiritual and poetic filmmaking could come from what I believed was a cold, dead, soulless, spiritually empty place.

Mirror is my favourite film. Sublime.
