SOLARIS script
SOLARIS (1972)
Synopsis: Based on the classic science fiction novel by Stanislaw Lem, "Solaris" centers on a psychologist (George Clooney) sent to investigate unexplained behavior of key scientists on a space station orbiting the planet Solaris. Once aboard he, too, falls victim to this unique world's mysteries -- as well as to an erotic obsession with someone he thought he had left behind.

Kelvin, now out of his space suit and holding a small

carrying case and a duffle bag, moves on.

I didn't lose my mind. You should

be able to tell from this video.

I'm not mad.


If it happens to you, remember that

it isn't madness.


You should know, I'm in favor of

destroying Solaris. I know

that's... illegal. And unethical.

And irresponsible. But it's the

only way to make it stop.

A long moment of silence is broken by a noise on the video,

which draws Gibarian's attention offscreen.


(addressing whoever made

the noise)

Cut that out. Do you hear me?
