God knows I've contacted Criterion more times than I care to admit, to acquire Soderberg's preferred cut!

Yes, thats the one I would be very excited about. I really don't know whats taking so long, this would have been the perfect oppertunity to finally release it alongside the original.

A day one buy for me. Tarkovsky's Science Fiction masterpiece is up there with the very best of them. Thoughtful, abstract, and an amazingly insightful look at the human condition. The ending is absolutely stunning too....

Not 100% keen on the cover. I love the lettering of SOLARIS, but Natalya Bondarchuk wouldn't be my preference as being on the cover.

In saying that I cannot wait to get this. Might have to get courier shipping on it - so it gets here quicker.

I hope Criterion then works on the other Tarkovsky flims. Andrei Rublev really needs an anamorphic release.

Best news of the day! I am absolutely excited for this release. A Sci-fi masterpiece that knows how to blend thoughts with images in a totally new level.

i FINALLY watched this last night, after a long planning of when to start the canon of the Russian legend (i also have Andrei Rublev to view as well). the film was not exactly what i expected, but i was completed enthralled until the pretty mind-blowing ending.

i'll let it sit until July when the B1G1 Criterion sale commences.

This is one of those rare instances where I thought the remake was a better film than the original.
