* ''AndreiRublev'' (1966) is Tarkovsky's longest film, at 205 minutes, and is a {{Biopic}} of medieval Russian icon painter Andrei Rublev, focusing on his role in creating the Russian Christian identity. Its depictions of ancient religion and ambiguity about politics got this film censored for years. However, it was his first widely awarded film.

* FollowTheLeader: The critical reception of ''[[ASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]'' may have factored into the creation of ''Solaris'' and ''Stalker'', similar meditative sci-fi films. Tarkovsky made very clear that he wasn't a fan of Kubrick's film, however.
* GainaxEnding: Some of his movies seem to end in this way, like for example ''TheMirror'' and ''Nostalghia''. See also MindScrew.

* DownerEnding: ''Ivan's Childhood'', ''The Sacrifice'', and, in a more meta sense, Tarkovsky's own life, as he died from cancer just before his works gained a real worldwide audience.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: The appeal of his films doesn't come from plot ot suspense but from mood and atmosphere which can turn an otherwise ordinary moment into something epic.

->''"Perhaps the meaning of all human activity lies in artistic consciousness, in the pointless and selfless creative act? Perhaps our capacity to create is evidence that we ourselves were created in the image and likeness of God?"''
