    A reviewer

    Well, I live in 'The West' and celebrate this film. It has nothing to do with any anti-Soviet sentiment on my part or from anything that may that be misread from the film. Andrei Rublev is a stunning visual meditation on the faith of an extraordinarily sensitive and gifted painter who lived through a particularly turbulent period in Russian history. But that's only the central theme in a film which considers the daily vicissitudes of a life dedicated to an art of religious faith and compassion. Highly recommended.

    On Most Director's Lists of All-Time Greats.

    Haunting, stark, unpretentious, simple, atmospheric; they don't make them like this anymore. What an ending; like you died and went to heaven with Rublev. A simple story, a struggle that recreates medevil like nothing you've ever seen. Unsuspecting cruelty occurs, like life itself. Bergman may have wished he gave up symbolism in his approach after seeing this one.

    Opium

    Religion is opium for some movie directors. The worst Tarkovski's movie. Outstanding disappointment. Celebrated in the West mostly because of its (then) anti-Soviet-party status. All pathetic and negative. No humor. No REAL hope. Violence, madness and despair. Some empty talk, too. The dark ages in the 20th century cinema. During the past 30 years, I have watched it 12 times, trying to figure out what people find in it. At the end, I concluded: another case of a mass sado-macohism-idealism. If you need pro-depressants, take this. Otherwise, watch the Chaplin.
