In case you didn't know already, the nature of Tarkovsky's diaries mean this isn't something you can read comprehensively. It's just the jottings and personal notes - literally a diary - of various things in his life. Of course, some of those things are boring and some of them regard the finest cinematography, err, ever?
I love that hit-and-miss nature of reading his thoughts. Sometimes I'll idly be flicking through shopping lists and drawings, slightly voyeuristically. Then you come across a frenzy of writing; you literally get a sense of the relative rarity of creative 'inspiration'.
If you liked his films, or simply fancy getting to know a truly honourable and stunning man, don't hesitate to purchase.
These journals provide such incite and in doing so are a window on the wonderfully romantic and tortured soul of Andrey Tarkovski. At points I wanted to cry; ill health, soviet film councils, poverty, fire, all plaques that afflicted this amazing film maker who possessed a single minded vision of the films he strived against all possible adversity to create. Whether in the end his relatively limited output is improved by the above or whether his potential was never fully realised will never be known. He died of lung cancer shortly after creating his 7th film, like his favourite actor Tolya Solonitysn, despite quiting smoking years before.
His films are amazing and these diarys, while greatly flawed in their editorship, are a wonderful incite into the great mans mind and make excellent reading.
