Did you know...

...that the 1972 movie "Solyaris" directed by Andrei Tarkovsky is considered by many to be one of the most powerful sci-fi films in history, surpassing Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey"?  The film's eerie exploration of the human psyche helped it to win the 1972 Cannes Special Jury Prize.  The plot for the movie was supplied by the 1961 novel by the Polish sci-fi writer Stanislaw Lem.
