Simply put, DIALING FOR DINGBATS, particularly when viewed at 3 AM during a USA Up All Night broadcast, achieves an accidental tone of dream-logic and VHS-surrealism that, in my opinion, makes it a work of art. Yes, it's corny and technically inept, but so what? Do your dreams always have state-of-the-art special effects? Mine don't. This movie is just bizarre in a way that few movies are, because it isn't trying to be weird, it just is. A masterpiece. Another movie that achieves a similar sort of vibe is BEYOND DREAM'S DOOR. Incidentally, DIALING FOR DINGBATS and BEYOND DREAM'S DOOR are two of my top five favorite movies ever made.
