Waking Life

Waking Life ★★★½

Lately for some reason I've been really enamored with the concept of dreams and how they affect us. I rewatched Kurosawa's Dreams and also rewatched Blue Velvet, but there really isn't any movie that better explores the concept than Waking Life. This entire movie is just people rambling about dreams while being in a dream. It looks and functions just like dreams do and the whole journey is basically just about understanding how dreams affect us emotionally, and although I don't know if I learned anything specific about it I still feel more fulfilled by this movie than any other about understanding dreams. Also shoutout to Jesse and Celine from the Before trilogy for being in this.
