Dream On! takes real risks with cinema as form...manifesting a kind of narrative-collage. The film's action follows a group of young actors as they struggle to survive in L.A. and hang on to their artistic principles.

If you really want to examine what a painfully standard Charles Bronson flick looks like you should check out 23 year old "Borderline" because it simply doesn't get any more basic and average Bronson than this. Probably the only amusing detail about this movie is Ed Harris and mainly just because he's playing one of his first screen roles. Actually Hotchkiss was the first bigger performance he had. Later on Harris received not one but four Oscar nominations, who would have guessed it back then?
I have always liked Charles Bronson very much but he has never been among my favorite actors. Well, maybe when I was a kid but that's another story. In my opinion he looks way too tired in every role. Clint Eastwood beats him any day but let's not come to all that or the praise will never end. I guess you would have to be a serious hardcore Bronson fanatic to utterly love this film because it has practically no action or proper story whatsoever. I personally find it watchable since late Bronson has a certain place in my heart too but it definitely isn't a remarkable film in any way.
