A Twitter Guide to Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker

Have you ever loved a film so much that you wanted to write a book about it? Author Geoff Dyer just published Zona: A Book about a Film about a Journey to a Room, an entire book dedicated to Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky.

Stalker is a spooky film about three men traveling through a magical wasteland, a trip loaded with enough great writing, surreal imagery and existential philosophy to inspire you to write your own book. On March 11th, we hosted an online viewing of Stalker with a crew of intrepid writers–posting thoughts, reactions and Dyer quotes on Twitter.

Highlights from the online viewing follow below.  You can read more about the book at The Huffington Post. Follow these links to watch the film online for free: Stalker Part 1 and  Stalker Part 2.
