581. Zerkalo

Zerkalo
The Mirror
1974
Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky









Andrei Tarkovsky delivers us another incredibly boring movie.  Perhaps 1974 isn't our year after all.

Honestly, I have absolutely no idea what this movie is about.  I didn't understand it during its grueling run time, and I still don't get it, after doing some research online.  Basically, this movie is about the life of Alexei, who is an exceedingly dull "protagonist."  Pictured above, you will one of the pivotal scenes, when his mother washes her hair.  Heavy stuff...

This is the kind of pretentious nightmare that I think most people picture when they hear the term "foreign film."  Avoid at all costs.

RATING: *----

Interesting Facts:

I have nothing on this one.  Dull to the very end.
