Criterion Collection has digitally restored Andrei Tarkovsky’s sci-fi masterpiece Stalker for release to Blu-ray disc. The 2k restoration of the 1979 film includes an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, a new English subtitle translation, and several bonus features including an essay by critic Mark Le Fanu.

Stalker on Blu-ray looks to be one of the more promising Criterion releases this year. With gorgeous cinematography from Alexander Knyazhinsky, and set designs from Rashit Safiullin, the HD restoration is bound to be a visual treat.

The 1080p video on the Blu-ray is formatted in 1080p in its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio, backed by an uncompressed monaural soundtrack.

Stalker hits stores on Blu-ray on July 18, 2017. The film is #211 in IMDB’s “Top Rated Movies” list.
