Promotional Information

Tarkovsky sets down his thoughts and his memories, revealing for the first time the original inspirations for his extraordinary films


Tarkovsky, who died in exile in 1986, was considered by some Western film critics to be one of Russia's foremost latter-day filmmakers. His image-rich nonlinear style was apparently little understood or appreciated in his own country and his films received poor distribution. Tarkovsky elaborates in much detail on his theory of filmmaking, including editing, music, film acting, and what he calls ``rhythm,'' which he considers the dominant factor. The translation appears to be excellent, but the book would have benefited greatly from an introductory essay setting the director's aesthetics and career in perspective. An important addition for large cinema collections. Roy Liebman, California State Univ. Lib., Los Angeles

"If Sculpting in Time could be distilled to a single message, it would be this: Content and conscience must come before technique - for any artist in any art form." Los Angeles Times Book Review
