Review quote

"If Sculpting in Time could be distilled to a single message, it would be this: Content and conscience must come before technique-for any artist in any art form." Los Angeles Times Book Review "Learning the language of cinema in Tarkovsky's films and in this stunning memoir, we reacquaint ourselves with art's function: in the author's words, 'to turn and loosen the human soul.'" Paste Magazine
