Andrei's was wayyyy better than Soderbergh's. BUT: Soderbergh's has one of the best scores conceived by man. Cliff Martinez FTW!

"The free film"
WTF is "The free film"
My guess is "The free film" is more likely "the free video"
Solaris... 35mm.... nothing better at all

The original was incredibly long and incredbly slow. It was based on a book by Stanislov Lem, which was much more a treatise on the Russian spirit in the mode of Eco, than it was a sci-fi novel. I say save your money and watch 2001 again.

Chances are you;ll fall asleep.

Although the Soviet film sets and props are kinda neat in a kitchy way.
