The Conversations: Overlooked, Part II—Solaris

In Part II of our "Overlooked" installment, Ed Howard and I discuss Steven Soderbergh's Solaris to close out the third edition of The Conversations over at The House Next Door. In analyzing Soderbergh's film, our debate touches on Andrei Tarkovsky's 1972 film of same name, Stanislaw Lem's original story and, you guessed it, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (inevitable, right?).

In Part I, posted yesterday, we discuss David Gordon Green's Undertow.

Check out Part II. Add to the conversation by leaving comments at The House Next Door.
