10. Mulholland Drive - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

Mulholland Drive: Technically, Mulholland Drive is one giant Mobius strip of dream sequences. The twist comes when the viewer realizes that the entire setting of the film so far has been a fantasy, and that Naomi Watts' character isn't a bright young star but a desperate woman in love with someone she can never have. A genius offering from David Lynch, and one worth watching again just to figure out what's going on. It's hard to pick just one sequence from the film...

9. Dumbo - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

Dumbo: Disney packs some classic moments into Dumbo's 64 minutes, including a mother-son song that's guaranteed to make you cry... the acid-fueled dream sequence that's been scarring kids for decades. The sequence is probably meant to be a caution against drunkenness, or just a good example of why an elephant and a mouse should never be allowed to have champagne, but there's almost no story value at all in the dream. It's just plain freaky.

8. Rosemary's baby - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequence
3 years ago

Rosemary's Baby: Roman Polanski's 1968 horror flick uses a shocking premise — woman gives birth to Satan's baby — and mines it for sheer atmospheric terror. After Rosemary (Mia Farrow) is drugged, she passes out and has a vivid dream in which she hallucinates (or thinks she does) that she's being impregnated.  

7. Vertigo - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

Vertigo: Alfred Hitchcock makes the list twice. Vertigo is by no means a perfect film — it gets a little draggy in the final act — but it's still vintage Hitchcock, with all the double-crosses and hot blondes you could ask for. When Scottie (James Stewart) sees his love plummet to her death, he's hit with a creepy nightmare built on flashing colours and eerie animation. Throw in some classic music from composer Bernard Herrmann and you're all set.

6. Wild Strawberries - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

Wild Strawberries: Ingmar Bergman's 1957 exploration of mortality uses dream sequences to potent effect, allowing an old man's confusing, unreal dreams to set the tone for the entire movie. It's a slow-moving sequence, but never a boring one, and it's a great example of how things that would just look like random accidents in real life can take on a new level of importance in dreams.  

5. Spellbound - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

Spellbound, 1945, and Salvador Dali
.
Spellbound
: Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 thriller is one of his better works, and it's notable especially for the fact that Hitch hired Salvador Dali to design the dream sequences that would illustrate the fragility of human perception and the nature of delusion. The resulting sequence is a gorgeous one that plays to Dali's surrealist strengths while also elevating the overall quality of Hitchcock's already impressive film. It's rare to see titans of such different media working together like this, which is why the dream sequence remains one of the best in movie history.

4. Trainspotting: 10 Best Movie Dream sequences
3 years ago

Trainspotting:
Watching Danny Boyle's Trainspotting while sick or hungover is not at all advisable. The so-called dream sequence consists of the images of Renton (Ewan McGregor) going through withdrawal and hallucinating that a baby with a swivel head is crawling across his ceiling.

3. The Science of Sleep - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

The third movie, written and directed by Michel Gondry, has more than one dream sequence:
............................................
The Science of Sleep: A man entranced by his dreams and imagination is lovestruck with a French woman and feels he can show her his world. Michel Gondry has always done amazing things with visual effects (his music videos are a good place to start), and the 2006 film The Science of Sleep is no exception. The film plays with the walls between reality and dreams by having the main character (Gael Garcia Bernal) slide between the two with such ease that the viewer is often unsure where one stops and the other begins. One of the most memorable dream sequences in the film sees the man doing battle with himself as he tries to work with giant hands that have a shop-made look only Gondry could bring to them.

2. Fast Times at Ridgemont High - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

This teen movie is the 2nd on the list advised by the article.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
: For a generation of young men, the strains of The Cars' Moving in Stereo still evoke strong, unexplained urges. Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a teen comedy...but Judge Reinhold was in his mid-20s when the movie was filmed.

1. The Big Lebowski - 10 Best Movie Dream Sequences
3 years ago

According to this article, the first dream sequence to take note of is Gutterballs from the Coen brothers movie, The Big Lebowski. I haven't seen this movie, but I usually like movies by the Coen brothers.
..........................................................
The Big Lebowski is arguably the best movie the Coen brothers have ever made (certainly the most Coen-nish one, if that makes sense), and the absurd comedy is anchored by this glorious dream sequence that mashes up everything in the Dude's head, from bowling to porn to Saddam Hussein... scored to Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In), a song by The First Edition with KennyRogers on lead vocals.

Movies have the power to show life as it really is, but it takes a whole other kind of skill and ingenuity to capture on film the surreal fantasies that feel both strange and universal

"Furry Vengeance" looks like it might be quite funny. Also wouldn't mind seeing "Letters to Juliet". I'm a softy for romance/love stories. Not sure if it's out in Australia yet? As for "Robin Hood", could Russell ever out do Errol Flynn? He doesn't even wear the leafy green outfit and tights. lol
