Review

Kevin J. McCorry’s psychological drama delves deep into the tumultuous world of the protagonist, Alex, played with tension by Richard Sherwood. From the very beginning, we are thrust into the darkness of Alex’s mind, as his once promising life spirals into despair and psychological turmoil.

The film paints a compelling picture of Alex’s struggles, as we witness his confinement in his apartment due to agoraphobia – sparked by troubling life events. McCorry’s exploration of mental health is both thought-provoking and intense, inviting audiences to confront the complexities of the human psyche.

Richard Sherwood’s portrayal of Alex, as well as his two distinct psychological personas, demonstrates an immense range of talent. He adeptly showcases the internal battle within Alex’s mind, conveying the contrasting emotions of hope and despair. Sherwood’s performance is commendable, bringing depth and authenticity to each character.

Patrick Hughes’s cinematography elevates the film to another level, skillfully capturing the dark and foreboding atmosphere. The visual elements enhance the symbolic nature of the narrative, deepening the overall impact of the story.

While the film is undeniably a dark and disturbing film, its exploration of mental health issues is necessary and crucial. McCorry’s skillful storytelling keeps audiences engaged throughout, making for a thought-provoking, albeit emotionally turbulent, viewing experience.

‘Three – Way – Mirror’ is a compelling and challenging short film that fearlessly tackles the complexities of mental health. With a stellar performance, striking cinematography, and an unflinching examination of the human mind, this is a gripping and unforgettable piece of cinema.
