The Most Dream-like Film Has to Be the Mirror

The Mirror

Tarkovsky's evocative homage to his mother, the Mirror, is not unwatchable because of gratuituous violence but rather the film itself has a sophorific lilt to it that will make you fall asleep, unable to watch the entire feature. But, I am thinking, perhaps Tarkovsky planned the film to be like a dream. I watched it coming in and out of consciousness.
