Re: BSG S4: Revelations

Jammer's description of the long, sweeping shot on earth is accurate. What he may not have realized is how much this shot owes to the cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky, the great Russian film director who died in 1983.

BSG's shot would have been right at home in the Tarkovsky's films such as The Sacrifice (1981), Nostalghia (1979), or Zerkalo (1974). Even the sepia tone in the BSG shot is taken right from Tarkovsky.

My guess is that someone in the BSG production team is knowledgeable about Tarkovsky's work, and this shot may have even been an hommage to him.

So I say, Bravo to the BSG production team, and to Jammer for recognizing the strength and beauty of this magnificent shot. It owes powerful debt to the great Russian film master, Andrei Tarkovsky.
