Just watched "Stalker" yesterday. Definitely worth it; some amazing camera work there, and true genius in saying much with little. Some of the philosophizing was a bit on the obvious side, though, and detracted from the full impact of the film.

I also read The Roadside Picnic [ http://www.cca.org/cm/picnic.pdf ]. The novel, the film, and the game all explore the same themes. Lots of stuff in the text that didn't make it into the movie were found in the game, and vice versa. All three felt like rough diamonds; perhaps the final expression of this idea is still to be made.
