(500) Films of Empire - Day 280

285 - Solaris - 2 stars
A sci-fi film that certainly has more in common with 2001 than Star Wars.
Kris Kelvin investigates problems on the Solaris space station and encounters ghosts from the past in this study of our inability to communicate, whether it be with another human or alien life.
Whilst it was more poetic and thought provoking than the Soderbergh remake which focused more on Kelvin's relationship with his wife than the more wider reaching issue of establishing contact with extra-terrestrial life, but it was lost to me in an endurance and attention sapping trip to the outer reaches of space.
