As I've mentioned elsewhere, Tarkovsky's Stalker is a film very dear to me, 'holy writ to my imagination', a text I've reworked and riffed-upon in my own writings not once but many times. This is the case not despite, but in a strange way because, it is basically Last of the Summer Wine, Russian-style. Gloriously so.
I also like the way the cyrillic version of the title looks like Ctanker, which in turn chimes to my English ears as a fine portmanteau of 'Cunt' and 'Wanker'. It's transgressive, you see, is Tarkovsky's movie.
