Solaris

Went to see Solaris with Mark last night. I liked it. It could definitely have been edited down a bit more, but I wonder if doing so would have broken the mood. There weren’t any specific scenes that were unnecessarily long; it was more a matter of five seconds here, two seconds there, replacing the pan with a jump cut… The naturalistic pacing did give it a good sense of indeterminate time, though: the feeling that Kelvin might have been on Solaris for days, weeks, maybe even months.
