Directed by Akira Kurosawa and Ishirō Honda
Dreams is a magical realist film based on the dreams of Akira Kurosawa. Sometimes cliché, but sometimes quite moving, Dreams relates unconnected vignettes. The film betrays little of Kurosawa’s subconscious or the curious logic of sleeping people. Dreams is unlike his other works, and it isn’t essential, but it’s charming and thoughtful nonetheless.
