As you may have guessed from previous posts, I’ve got 5 copies of Andrei Tarkovsky’s legendary film, Solaris, to give away. On Blu-ray.
If you’ve ever been curious about this film, now’s the chance to fill in a crucial gap in your Sci Fi knowledge.
If you do know Solaris, you know it’s the kind of Sci Fi that doesn’t appeal to people who like things like Transformers. It’s not a hyperkinetic, light-on-character roller coaster ride of a film.

For those of you keen on the more ‘contemplative’ Sci Fi, like, say 2001: A Space Odyssey, then there’s also another film coming up, called Love, releasing across Australia August 30.
I’ll be hosting a Q&A with Director William Eubank and star Gunner Wright at Dendy Newtown on August the 27th. They’ll also be appearing at Heroes and Villains, the weekend before, Aug 25-26, out at Panthers in Penrith.
Love spans several hundred years, and is a really fascinating change of pace for Sci Fi fans looking for something a bit different. The film is a remarkably good looking, ingenious low-budget film – for the space station set, director Eubank used packing quilts, pizza bags, velcro,insulation, Christmas lights, and other salvaged material as components to the ISS set – all in his parent’s backyard.
