Film Series: The Mirror

1975. USSR. Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky. With Margarita Terekhova. 102 min.


A dying man remembers his life, his youth, his mother, and… that’s all we really get in terms of plot for this deliciously baffling film poem. Tarkovsky builds stream of consciousness into a surreal, hypnotic Swiss clock, expertly constructed to be equal parts mesmerizing impenetrability and staggering beauty.
