680469, Solaris is his outlier to me

(although I haven't seen Nostalghia or Ivan's Childhood yet)

maybe because it was his first movie in full color, or due to the fact he didn't get along with Banionis (interesting to think that Bibi Anderssen was considered for Hari at one point), but as a whole, it's less like Stalker/Rublev/Mirror despite being very good on its own.

I'm kind of at odds with The Mirror myself, as the voice-over and flashback footage make it hard to watch in spots. sort of a precursor to Malick's Tree of Life in a couple ways.
