Dreaming In The Dark

Dreaming in the Dark reviews 125 films devoured during the COVID isolation and published first for the amusement of Facebook friends. The reviews follow the essay tradition of reflections on life, with an effort to reproduce experiencing the film and personal recollections. What did the film mean in its historical moment and for us now? Movies are more than entertainments and distractions. How do these films inspire us to live better lives and work for a better world? The films are the great ones of the classic era (1940-1980), from Hollywood, but also from Japan, Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, and the UK. We love these films and for good reasons.
