Mirror ★★★★★

Is there any reason to doubt that Andrei Tarkovsky is one of the greatest filmmakers ever to have lived? There's no other filmmaker that I can think of that carries a style quite like his own, and putting it lightly - they're all just like visual poetry.

But Mirror feels like it's taking that term to a more literal sense, yet that's what makes it so hypnotizing to watch. It's a film that's drawn through its visuals, yet still feels like it's telling something very personal at its core. It's not always easy, but I can't help myself from wanting to revisit this again and maybe getting a better sense of what's going on.
