Tarkovsky’s film is a cinematic experience like no other, an immersive, metaphysical journey that casts a spell over the viewer that’s hard to shake. 
A towering landmark of science-fiction cinema, Andrei Tarkovsy’s Stalker follows a hired-guide as he leads two clients into a restricted area known only as the Zone, a mysterious post-apocalyptic wasteland and the site of a long-ago disaster. The Zone is said to contain a Room that has the ability to fulfill a person’s innermost desires, and the group venture through the treacherous, ever-shifting and seemingly sentient landscape of the Zone in an attempt to find it.
