bad. It's just...there.
One thing is sure, it's going to be a looong time before we ever see another one like Tarkovsky. If you're enjoying his films, philosophy, etc, I strongly suggest picking up his book Sculpting in Time. It's dry, but interesting to see how he works, how he thinks, his strong opinions (manifestos, almost) on film.
I've only seen those three. I have a copy of Ivan's Childhood that I'd like to watch, and I missed The Sacrifice when it was watched in the Movie of the Week thread (which got revived yesterday, and as always, we'd love to have you back). I know people say Stalker is great, and its in my Netflix DVD queue.
