For what In dreams, is, i feel that Neil Jordan did an exceptional job with the imagery and dream sequences. It is rare to see such an exceptional work despite the silly plot. This movie is much more than * 1/2 star by Ebert and Roper. This movie shows you a lot of good visuals as mentioned before which made me forget that the plot in this movie was not very good, however I would recommend this film, as I bought it on DVD yesterday.
