Remaking a successful but gloomy art-house film by Andrei Tarkovsky would appear a dangerous endeavour, but Soderbergh carries off in stylish fashion the tale of psychologist Chris Kelvin (Clooney) travelling to the troubled Prometheus space station to investigate the suicide of a crew member. The planet Solaris creates seemingly flesh-and-blood people from the memories and desires of the occupants of Prometheus, creating a danger to rational life on Earth. As much philosophy as science fiction, the film is concerned with questions of identity, time, memory and the relationship between mind and body. It is also an absorbing love story.
