Mirror ★★★½

The most visually stunning of the Tarkovsky films that I've seen and the most narratively ambitious. Mirror is arresting to look at and provocative to contemplate, but the actual story was not quite as engaging as I had hoped. It felt like the story was there to serve the concept and not the other way around. Still this is an undeniably unique movie. The aesthetic is vibrant and executed precisely. The editing is excellent and the acting is tremendous.
