Ivan's Childhood, Andrei Tarkovsky

This week’s film is nominated by APEngine Editor, Gary Thomas: “I tend to drift off to my happy place when people start banging on about the genius of Tarkovsky. I like his films and I like children, but eating a whole one, as it were, can be tough going. I mean, that candle carrying scene in Nostalgia… jeez… just give up mate.”

“But some sequences… are simply the most sublime, profound and potent instances in cinema or any other art. And the opening of Ivan’s Childhood is one of them.”
