Mirror ★★★★★

Mirror is a poetic, abstract and deeply beautiful film that offers glimpses of memories from a childhood and life of a dying man, and also happens to be one of the most mesmerizing cinematic experiences i've had. It's a non-linear, jumbled, quiet, deliberate and slow film that puts you into a meditative state of mind with it's complex structure, lingering camerawork, dream-like atmosphere, and audiovisual treats. While the whole film is otherworldly beautiful, the burning barn sequence is a contender for the best and most beautifully filmed sequence of all time. And I was on the verge of tears during the ending. Mirror is a masterpiece of poetic and visual filmmaking, and a human and resonating film that left me speechless.
