(500) Films of Empire - Day 317

36 - Andrei Rublev - 2 stars
When it comes to me and Russian films, there is just something about them that rubs me up the wrong way, like Bond and Russia during the Cold War. Specifically the work of Tarkovsky.
Like his previous entry on the list Solaris, this film is more about creating a mood or tone rather than a fast moving plot. The theme of Rublev, is creating a piece of art or document of a period in history that allows people to take from it what they will, dependent on their own feelings on the nature of God and the human condition.
Myself, I'm not a very spiritual person so in the end I took nothing from it except an admiration for its cinematography.

Days remaining - 48 Films remaining - 48
