Why did you take my watch?
Hosted by Andrew Quinn and Darren Mooney, The 250 is a fortnightly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released every second Saturday at 6pm GMT, with the occasional bonus episode between them.
This time, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker.
There is a zone. At the centre of the zone, there is a room. An author and a professor wander through the mysterious quarantined zone, guided by a veteran known as a “stalker.”
At time of recording, it was ranked the 203rd best movie of all time on the Internet Movie Database.
