THE PRAYER OF TARKOVSKY’S STALKER

Let everything that’s been planned come true.
Let them believe.
And let them have a laugh at their passions.
Because what they call passion,
actually is not some emotional energy,
but just the friction between their souls and the outside world.
And most important, let them believe in themselves.
Let them be helpless like children,
because weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing.
When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible,
when he dies, he is hard and insensitive.
When a tree is growing, it’s tender and pliant,
but when it’s dry and hard, it dies.
Hardness and strength are death’s companions.
Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being.
Because what has hardened will never win.

Above: The Samuel Beckett play ”Breath” done by Damien Hirst for BBC. Maybe I should call it a horror short-film. I hate going to super-malls. Watching this gives me that feeling. I see a lot of human crap and in the end I see the symbol for true evil.

Above 2: UPDATE: I don’t have the rights to show this clip here. Click here to watch it on YouTube. Sorry.

From Andrei Tarkovsky’s film ”Stalker”. Here the Stalker falls ”asleep” by a pond. A long scene shows what’s lying in the pond. Strange, worrying but so beautiful and mesmerizing.

Above 3: This is a dream sequence from cult Australian horror film ”Razorback” made in 1984. Stalker is of course a much better film. No doubt about that. The other two clips above are far more deeper and worrying. But I like this little scene. I saw it first as a kid and this dream sequence really got to me. And some of the music is OK. This one for example.
