looking for a few good ideas

Solaris (2002)

We are so behind on our movie watch list that we made a special effort today to go out and see a film. We selected "Solaris" which just opened on Friday.

It's very good, but relies on a careful balance of several things: a) the music, which is very atmospheric and good; b) the actors, who are very good; c) the script, which walks a fine line between boring and subtle. Oh, and d) might be that it expects a certain level of intelligence from the audience, but maybe I'm just being elitist.

I enjoyed it. If you want things explained for you, you might not enjoy it.
