    Eternal

    I first watched Dreams when I was about 14 years old and I remember I was delighted - not only by what I saw in pictures, but also by the whole mood that took me. One of the most beautiful movies I`ve ever seen, compared to other great filmdirectors - it is maybe the most beautiful, in it`s most precious way. The last scene at the river explains life just as it is. Who saw it, knows what I`m talking about.

    Artistic Dreams, Political Nightmares

    This is probably the hardest film that I could ever try to review. Visually stunning, many of Kurosawa's artistic dreams and political nightmares come to life. At times, it lacks subtlety and Kurosawa resorts to preaching from his soapbox, but at least he does so in one instance tongue-in-cheek. In any case, it is not his finest film, but definitely the most intriguing. The music and images will stick with me even if I'm not sure what the sum total of Kurosawa's Dreams (and dreams) amounts to.

    BEAUTIFUL

    The great master director presents us with 8 mysterious, mesmerizing dreams. The film put me in a trance-like state of wonder. Breathtaking images.
