What Dreams! What Dreams!
2 April 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I suppose the mind of a writer can stir up the surreal at a moment's notice. Four astronauts arrive on Mars on a lander, while the rest of the crew waits aboard a ship. The Martians go by lettered names and accuse the Captain (David Birney) of being psychotic, saying that his crew and everything around them is his dream. Once all this starts, we are stuck with interpreting reality. What's going on. The Earthmen have the best intentions but are victimized by a perception that makes no sense to them. The Martians have telepathy, but, obviously, can't interpret what they absorb. Anyway, this is so weakly set up that it once again leaves us cold. Allowing our own interpretations is fine if we are given the proper substantive information.
