The Sacrifice back to product details

What Do I Know

Maybe I shouldn't be writing my opinion about "The Sacrifice", because I am totally devoid of the sensibilities that make many people delirious over the "genius" of the late (mercifully) director. In other words, I really disliked this movie, as I did "Andrei Rublev" also by Tarkovsky. The latter with its "artistic" depiction of a horse being literally pushed off a castle tower and snapping its leg in two, a real horse, a real tower, a real destroyed horse. Enough said about this pretentious jerk. In the case of "The Sacrifice" it is the viewer who gets pushed off the tower and wishes that someone would end this misery. The film starts slow, proceeds slow, and appropriately ends with the main character being carted off, probably a result of overlong association with Tarkovsky. But what do I know, since of the hundreds of films I have watched there are four all time worst and Tarkovsky directed two of them. However there are a lot of MELANCHOLY (you know who you are) people who may relish this fishy dish. Dive in.
