Structured like a winding religious pilgrimage, Stalker moves cautiously and slowly through its paces as the three men move closer toward the metaphorical Holy Center at the heart of the Zone. Telephone poles jutting out of the ground like crosses, religious icons beneath muddy rivers strewn with bullet shells, a miraculous, artificial desert in an underground room -- Tarkovsky's powerful, orthodox images and grimy, industrial settings present a deeply felt religious sentiment stirring beneath a war-ravaged, hostile landscape. Stalker is all the more compelling for not relying on a single gimmick or special effect to create its atmosphere of another world bordering our own. Anthony Reed, All Movie Guide
