I watched this film as part of my research of Experimental film along with a art film twist.
What I loved about it was its long lasting shots and interesting set locations. Even though it was in a foreign language, I found myself endearing to each character and wanting to follow each of their understandings of the journey they were on. I wasn't totally impressed with the changes from black and white to colour and didn't really understand their use.
The type of work I want to do in future will feature long solitary shots of a minute plus. This was the prime example of such a film, lasting 160+ minutes it only is made of 149 shots, making the average over a minute each. Some however were over 4 minutes long and these are what grabbed my attention the most. I come from a stage acting background and often find myself comparing film and TV against it for quality of production and acting. I think in shots over a minute you tend to cross over into acting prowess territory that stage offers because you are sitting on the actors shoulders the entire time, they're a character in a situation and have to keep in that character and give a true performance, along with knowing they're location in terms of cinematography, camera, direction, each other and holding an audiences attention. All those things together in these types of shots make me appreciate them even over the (stage>screen) complex I have.
Along with the way this film is made I also enjoyed its experimental and psychological story-line How all three of the men question there own intentions and judgments along the journey. Would having any wish in the world granted be a good thing, what if that power slipped into the wrong hands.
Overall I found Stalker very enjoyable personally and will recommend it to anybody.
