The Science of Sleep

   15 February 2007, terribly early in the morning

Shima and I watched Michael Gondry’s latest film The Science of Sleep last night. To say it’s really weird would be an understatement. It’s a very surreal film. The film features Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal and Charlotte Gainsbourg as a pair of neighbours who over the course of the film develop feelings for one another — sort of. Much of the film takes place in Bernal’s dreams. The film constantly jumps between the real world and the dream world. It’s very strange. Gondry is very creative; the dream sequences are really quite a pleasure to watch. I liked the film; if you watch it, go in expecting something totally off the wall.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
