* ArtShift: From sepia in the town to color in The Zone--although interestingly, the Stalker's crippled [[spoiler:and telekinetic]] daughter "Monkey" is always shot in color for her scenes, which are in the town.

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: Like other Tarkovsky films. The monochromatic / sepia town scenes contrast with the colorful Zone.

* FollowTheLeader: The critical reception of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' may have factored into the creation of ''Film/{{Solaris|1972}}'' and this film.

* MacGuffin: The Professor's backpack. At first his attachment to it makes him look like a cosseted old man, but in fact he needs it because it contains the bomb he stole from the other scientists.

Added DiffLines:

* GainaxEnding: The significance of the final shot, with Monkey using her psychokinetic abilities to push some glasses off a table as a train roars by the apartment and shakes it, has long been one of the major points of debate regarding this film[[note]]Creator/ArthurCClarke said it redeemed the entire film, in his opinion[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Room (allegedly) takes this one step further: You do not ''ask'' for your wish out loud or even consciously. Instead, it looks into your mind and fulfills your greatest desire. Do you even ''know'' what you want? Do you dare find out?
