Movies Are Like Dreams

Are your dreams ever boring?

Are they full of ecstasy, fear, sorrow or laughter?

Dreams linger on in your mind, just like a movie.

Movies are fluid. Movies like Dreams continuously fulfill a part of our psyche that excites us. Movies put us in another state of mind and transports us into a dreamlike state. Alfred Hitchcock (one my favorite film directors) once said "Drama is life with the dull parts cut out of it. I believe that this statement is true for dreams. Dreams are so dynamic that they stay with us for awhile, if not a lifetime. Movies are the Myths of our times. "Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths. By finding your own dream and following it through, it will lead you to the myth-world in which you live. But just as in dream, the subject and object, though they seem to be separate, are really the same.", Joseph Campbell. 

We are transformed through dreams and movies, rarely bored...full of ecstasy, fear, sorrow and laughter.

We are engaged and MOVED.
