I'm Talking Quietly Not To Wake Myself Up...

One of the coasters I mentioned in my previous post was inspired by a movie - most likely the best and the most visionary movie I have ever seen. The Science Of Sleep is filled with so much bright and vibrant imagery and eye-candy - it is difficult to take your eyes away!

The movie uses a lot of Spin Art and crafted objects (think back to the days of your school carnival). The scenes range from absurd (a spider type-writer, one second time machine), to the grand (an entire card board city) and the beautiful (a cloth horse back ride to the boat on a cellophane sea). The film develops its full potential where it arrives to such an incredible moment where we have little idea whether we are in a dream or in reality - it is seamless!

The dialogue is in French, English, and Spanish, each constantly interweaving with each other, much like the realities of the film do and then there comes a point in the film where you stop realizing the language of the film is constantly changing. Here is one of the many pieces I like from the film:

The movie has a great website - which is - as the movie itself - a great piece of art work. The site is like the main character's dream world - the paint layers upon itself and the colours stretch and mix together. As for the music - the soundtrack is on the website, just listen to this :):
