comedy, drama, romance... NOT
7 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

It is hard to understand such a high rating and raving reviews for Dreamworld. I can only assume that most of the contributors have either worked on it or are in some way related to the authors.

The production didn't annoy me, although the home video aesthetics pushed the limits of my patience. There are low budget movies that turned this into their advantage, yet Dreamworld is not one of them. The way i see it, it brought to life a world depicted in a cartoon presented by the main character in the beginning. We only see the excerpts, but i wouldn't waste a full length movie on the idea.

After a couple of minutes i simply lost interest in what was going on. The protagonists were deadbeat oddballs who didn't arouse any sympathy. Almost as if they deserved their fate.

As far as description is concerned, this was definitely not a comedy. This comes from a person that laughs at jokes even at those that leave the rest of the audience silent. Romance was there, although in a form that suits aforementioned oddballs. As far as drama is concerned, the most dramatic thing was trying not to fall asleep before the end of the movie.

Dreamworld is exactly what mainstream moviegoers have in mind when art-house cinema is mentioned. And you can't blame them they don't like it...
