Moskovskai︠a︡ kinostudii︠a︡ "Mosfilʹm"

DVD - 2021

In a richly textured collage of varying film stocks and newsreel footage, the recollections of a dying poet flash before the eyes, his dreams mingling with scenes of childhood, wartime, and marriage, all imbued with the mystical power of a trance. Largely dismissed by Soviet critics on its release because of its elusive narrative structure, Mirror has since taken its place as one of the director's most renowned and influential works, a stunning personal statement from an artist transmitting... his innermost thoughts and feelings directly from psyche to screen.
