A subtly ravishing passage during the halls of time and memory, this sublime reflection on twentieth-century Russian history by Andrei Tarkovsky (Stalker) is as much a poem composed in images, or a hypnagogic hallucination, as this is a work of cinema. In a richly textured collage of varying film stocks and newsreel footage, the recollections of a dying poet flash before our eyes, his dreams mingling with scenes of childhood, wartime, and marriage, all imbued with the mystical power of a trance. In large part dismissed by Soviet critics on its release on account of its elusive narrative structure, Mirror has since taken its place as one of the most director’s most renowned and influential works, a stunning personal remark from an artist transmitting his innermost thoughts and feelings in an instant from psyche to screen.
