MMM: Monday Movie Meme @ Madlab Post: Dreams


Oh, I love what Nicole's chosen for her MMM: Monday Movie Meme this week: dreams. I'm a dreamer. I dream in full technicolor, and I can usually fly away when things get bad. I take off by leaning back, turn myself over, and then do the Swedish breast-stroke (you don't put your head under water with each stroke...at least not when swimming in the frigid lakes. I suppose you might if you were in the Olympics...)to achieve whatever height I need for that particular dream.

Nightmares are bad though, can't fly at all, can't move, can't do a cartwheel (which used to be my form of escape back when I was a gymnast – I'd madly and quickly cartwheel away from the bad guy – but in nightmares my feet never land, I always fall on my side).

I also have dreams within a dream within a dream within a dream. These are freaky because it's always normal stuff. I'm taking a nap, someone comes in wakes me up, stuff happens. Usually normal stuff. THEN I wake up and realize it was a dream, and more stuff happens, and so on. I've done four levels. Then when I'm finally, REALLY awake, I wonder why I could possibly have thought I was awake before because NOW everything is real. Which brings me to my favorite dream movie. Any guesses? 

I'd go to IMDB and steal the picture, like I used to, but apparently that is frowned upon these days. So I've linked you. I think linking is still OK. I mean, they want you to see the movie, right? I know it's a fairly well known movie, but I don't want to give anything away. However, it's a perfect example of dream-in a dream-in a dream times four. I LOVED it. See it. Watch carefully. Then lets debate the ending.

Don't forget to visit Nicole and see what dreams she picked, or put up your own post and link to it in her comments.

What movies do you like with a dream sequence, theme, etc? I love getting recommendations. You might have noticed we watch a LOT of movies around here...

P.S YES, it's Tuesday.  I'm late.  Sorry.  Getting ready for back to school while on bed rest isn't exactly the easiest task with all your relatives out of town for the wedding you had to miss...but enough whining for now.  You know you can always come back another day for more ;-)

I've never been much of a movie buff....the only dream sequence that comes to mind is the "Florida Fantasy" that Ratso Rizzo daydreams about in Midnight Cowboy.
