Review by Dana Stevens in Slate

"Dyer guides readers through the Zone that Tarkovsky’s movie itself is: a whacked-out spatial and experiential terrain where ominous moss-hung tunnels suddenly give way to airplane-hangar-sized halls full of dust, and where the laws of physics and simple logic seem no longer to apply. Dyer may not always be able to tell us what the hell is going on—he confesses that with each successive viewing, he loses more of his youthful drive to understand what Stalker “means”—but he’s game to endure that unknowing with us, and to point out the moments of strange, stark beauty along the way."
