Its an unusual film in that its a sequence of short films not related to each other by, say, character or setting: its film as a form of thought on a something Big (like what Tolstoy's Master and Man is in literature). Discerning the Big Idea - discovering it for oneself - is the very pleasure in watching it. (Otherwise, its only the first two in the series that I liked.)

Legendary film director, Akira Kurosawa, released "Dreams" in 1990 as his 28th masterpiece. Visually stunning, the film is a set of eight vignettes depicting the effects of human beings on nature. It is just as relevant today as it was at its release. Recommended by Michele

Moving, magical dream episodes include the forbidden sight of fox spirits' wedding; apocalyptic destruction; and a vibrant, musical dancing procession celebrating life. This is a gorgeous, deep film from a great filmmaker, enriched by the perspective of age.
