In "Married ... with Children," Ed O'Neill played one of TV's biggest losers and, as bad luck would have it, he continues today to reign as one of the biggest losers of TV's top award even though his current show, "Modern Family," has won the Emmy as Best Comedy Series four years in a row.

To begin with, while Nostalghia may have been his second-to-last feature, he was only 51 at the time (he tragically passed away just 3 years and one film later). In addition, this type of weighty subject matter had been common thematic territory for Tarkovsky since his first films in the early 1960s. And though only having made seven feature films, each approach was a spiritual level of visual, verbal, and atmospheric transcendence not regularly attempted by many other filmmakers, »
