Storyline

"Devils Are Dreaming" is a bizarre black comedy about high art, pornography and a thirty-year-old loser caught in between. Beginning in the world of experimental theatre, careening into the world of pornography and landing side-ways in suburbia, the film combines striking visuals, raw performances, a disjointed time line, and layered musical atmospherics to tell the story of a wannabe trying to find himself through various doomed artistic pursuits. Joseph Avedon is an annoyingly unfocused thirty-year-old living at home with his worried parents. While taking part in a ridiculously bad experimental theatre version of "Hamlet", he falls in love with the talented and beautiful Cessia. But Joseph soon finds himself kicked out of the production, rejected by the girl and being drawn in to a successful life as a pornographer. When confronted with failures in art and love, as well as the potential for success in a field he abhors, Joseph starts losing touch with reality - falling in to ... Written by Sladek, Michael

It's like Woody Allen combined with David Lynch
14 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this a couple weeks ago at a screening in Denver. Thought their flier looked interesting so I just went. At first I wasn't sure what to make of the film as it seemed like a normal light comedy about a Woody Allenesque loser type and then it took a drastic turn and became a really interesting psychological black comedy. The style was pretty rough overall, probably because of the low budget they were working with, but the writing, directing, performances and a lot of the look of the film was really good. The music was amazing. I couldn't stop thinking about the movie for at least a week or so. It really affected my girlfriend who came with me too. I bought a copy of the soundtrack through their website and listen to it all the time. Hopefully they'll be selling DVD's too soon. I'd love to see it again because I found it really layered and a fun watch even though it gets kinda dark later in the film. If you like movies that are actually about something, try to do something different, and can live without amazing special effects, you might like this one too.
