My Dream life
List creator: cammelltoe
Created on: August 25, 2004 - 6:00 PM PDT
Description: movies that I love that assume a dream-like narrative quality that is at once liberating and terrifying, movies that can't be explained away as simple allegory. Try one.

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Vertigo (Special Edition) (1958)
  Hitchcock's best movies all feel like (bad) dreams but this one holds a special place in my heart for it's bold portrayal of obsession/anxiety dictating narrative reality.
Persona (1966)
Not Rated
  I dare you to figure out what this flick's about! Or just bask in it's heady imagery, which tells more stoires then 100 lesser films. Beware! I've read that they screwed up the aspect ratio for the transfer of this disc!
8 1/2 (Criterion Collection) (1963)
  One of Fellini's better fever dreams
Night of the Hunted (1980)
Not Rated
  Jean Rollin ditches the fangs for this modern tale of insanity, with a strange erotic logic that trumps reason. Brigitte Lahaie is always good.
The Saddest Music in the World (2003)
  Guy Maddin has a bit of Borges in him, in that his films spring from techniques and languages that often times are imagined to exsist, rather than actually do. Surreal, oedipal, enjoy!
The Whip and the Body (1963)
Not Rated
  Mario Bava was never the sharpest one with a plot twist, but put him behind a camera and the man was a genius. All of his movies have an eerie quality that will seem funny if taken literally, but are really terrifying at the same time.
Kill, Baby... Kill! (1966)
  With WHIP AND THE BODY, two of the best. BLACK SABBATH is nothing to sneeze at either.
Blue Velvet (1986)
  The "dime store" surrealist, David Lynch has sucsesfully created movies that some how make sense but don't. All of his movies are well-crafted dreams, worlds of their own
Lost Highway (1997)
  Much Maligned, but really amazing if you actually pay attention to it.
Mulholland Dr. (2001)
  Lynch's masterpiece
