  1. 90
    A brilliant appreciation of the last great Soviet director, Andrei Tarkovsky.
  2. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    If there is any message in Tarkovsky's work, although as a poet he would never stoop to anything as banal as a message, it is that life is an internal affair, played out in one's soul, not in public.
  3. 80
    It's such a lovely piece of work -- and, especially for a filmmaker whose name is barely known outside of art-house circles, so pleasingly accessible -- that it's troubling to think that few people outside of major cities will be able to see it.
  4. If you're looking for either insight or even just an introduction into the mind of a great artist, "One Day" is worth the effort.
  5. 75
    Marker's documentary, shot on video, uses interviews, film clips and shots of Tarkovsky on the set to examine the Russian's work.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    Perfect introduction to a remarkable career, and a moving memorial to a remarkable filmmaker.
