solaris is easily the best sci-fi movie in the last 10 years. soderbergh manages to extract the essence from a book that had a major impact on me as a teenager. amazing cast and a great soundtrack, if only i had somebody with me to talk about the movie right afterwards over a nice cup of coffee. btw, maybe i'm the exception, but i never really cared for tarkovsky's version.

and death shall have no dominion.
dead men naked they shall be one
with the man in the wind and the west moon;
when their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
they shall have stars at elbow and foot;
though they go mad they shall be sane,
though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
though lovers be lost love shall not;
and death shall have no dominion.
