Undoubtedly one of the most profound and influential genre films ever, Tarkovsky's masterpiece strains the boundaries of sci-fi at every turn. The director doesn't quite bother with futuristic vistas (the film's lone city scene was simply shot in contemporary Tokyo), concentrating on the barren "soulscapes" of the characters. Among the pleasures missing from the recent, fair Hollywood remake are the many mirror-hall ambivalences of the coda and Eduard Artemiev's astonishing score (played on primitive synthesizers). - by Robert Skotak

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
