Michel Gondry's THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP

Michel Gondry's THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP

Movie review by Dennis D. McDonald

What a sweet film this is. Not that it's all pleasant -- it isn't. But we do get to see inside someone's head, someone for whom dreams are reality and a way of dealing with the complexities of day to day life.

It helps that the young man who is the subject of the movie is a decent sort but clueless about his effect on others. He says and does some boneheaded things that hurt himself and others. Sound familiar?

It would be interesting to put this on a double bill with The Saddest Music in the World.
