Mirror ★★★★

Beautifully observed dream that's best to let wash over you. The images taken in isolation are absolutely stunning and often intensely emotional in their own right. I did struggle with some of the more verbose aspects of the screenplay (to quote letterboxd reviewer Jonathan White, "how can there be subtext when there is no context?"), but when Mirror lets go of dialogue and becomes a blend of poetry both narrated and visual it's a sumptuous vision of motherhood, war and isolation.
