On Andrei Tarkovsky's sacrifice

"..."Sculpting in time" is Tarkovsky's metaphor for the construction of a film's rhythm. The emphasis is put on time and rhythm, rather than on editing, which Tarkovsky considers little more than an assembly process. This distinction clearly separates him from his Soviet predecessors like Eisenstein, Pudovkin, and Kuleshov, whose experiments in montage Tarkovsky refers to as "puzzles and riddles," intellectual exercises that require too little of the audience..."
