Malcolm’s review published on Letterboxd:
"The overwhelming joy is clouded by anticipation of awakening."
Tarkovsky intentionally obscures time and space to mirror the real way humans recall their past. Mirror is the only memoir/autobiography that reflects how someone actually remembers their life. Through repeated actors, time jumps and color changes, Tarkovsky personally shows us how we will look back on our own life. Faces blend, time blends, and dreams blend with memories.
