He lived another years after the Flood. It also gives us insight into the first recorded human tyrant:
Seuss' first live-action movie--filmed with actors rather than animation, but his trademark combination of whimsy and dark themes is easily recognizable. The widowed mother of Bartholomew is determined her son must learn to play the piano.
Terwilliker to supervise endless practice. The waking-life Terwilliker is only mundanely authoritarian and insensitive, but Bartholomew goes to sleep and a dream encompasses most of the duration of the film.
Sets enhance the effect with impossibly high Bauhaus buildings which Bartholomew must scale on a flimsy ladder to escape music prison. Seuss commented on his use of dreaming in a memo to the film's producer, Stanley Kramer. The dream mechanism takes these elements that are thwarting him and blows them up to gigantic proportions.
The 5, Fingers of Dr. Mazur narrates in a parody of the serious tone which crime dramas use to assure viewers they are being scrupulously precise —except in this case, all the exact details are of fantastic events. In the first dream, Mazur finds illustrated books by Leiris and Jean Cocteau.
Upon the end of this dream, the film cuts briefly to a documentary of a water processing plant—waking life facts echoing themes in the dream. The second dream links to imagery in the first: The filmmaking is obviously low budget but excellent at capturing the feel of dream imagery. The mock documentary style is amusingly campy but also makes a point about the subjective reality of dream experience.
The film is not commercially available but has occasional showings including at the IASD conference Arizona Dream Excellent! This is the first English language film by Bosnian director Emir Kustrica his only other film widely available on video is Time of The Gypsies--also excellent but less directly related to dreams.
Johnny Depp is a gamekeeper who counts fish in the NYC harbor until the marriage of his uncle Jerry Lewis to model Paulina draws him back to Arizona, the land of his childhood, and to his uncle's romantic if not mystic version of a Cadillac dealership.
At first there are distinct dream sequences in which an Eskimo catches an odd fish with both eyes on the same side of its body, people walk down roads behind door frames, and our hero wakes to realistic scenes in which other people recount their dreams.
The eccentric Faye Dunaway shows up to buy a Cadillac. Depp falls in love and begins to help her build the flying machines she dreams of. I think it has some of the best dream sequences ever filmed.
It relies on surrealistic images and odd transitions to convey a compellingly dreamlike tone without any of the special effect of blurring focus or colored lighting used so stereotypically in other films. English language film shot in France. Johnny Depp; Jerry Lewis Stars. A college student, who has not recalled any dreams since the death of his parents years ago, begins have terrifying chains of false awakenings.
He turns to his psychology teacher for advice. At first the professor offers a plausible discussion of how the nightmares might relate to the parents death but soon more supernatural explanations intervene.
The main demon, however, consists of a laughably cheap costume which Woelfel struggles to shoot mostly in shadow. Overall, the film disappoints, but it has its moments.
Brainstorm A husband and wife team invents a device that can record one person's dreams or fantasies and feed them into another person's brain to experience; the government wants to exploit this for military purposes.
Features some good special effects--dream scenes. Probably for sci-fi buffs mostly; not a film that transcends the genre. Stars Natalie Wood in her last role, along with Christopher Walken. Christopher Walken; Natalie Wood Stars. Painstakingly hand-crafted stuffed animals and dolls move through simple fairy tale sets.
Night skies feature pinhole stars; running water is created with lights on cellophane. When the compelling porcelain figure is finished, the Creatures fall in love with her and refuse to release her to the equally enamored mice for any amount of gold.
The Creatures keep the doll as an obliquely erotic companion and eventually sew a giant egg under her garments. The mice sneak in by night in a carriage pulled by a tortoise and steal her. As they launch into a drunken orgy featuring the title blood tea, the Creatures seek to recover her with the help of a shamanic toad.
A spider with an eerie porcelain face helps and hinders each group in turn. The doll-with-egg-in-belly gives birth to a human-faced bluebird.
Mice, rats and spider compete for the doll and her exotic child with tragic consequences. There are specific dream scenes—mostly around hypnotic plants that make travelers sleep—and the whole film had a dream or storybook feel.Continued When Early Delivery Is Your Only Choice.
