AKIRA KUROSAWA'S DREAMS (1990) 4 stars

Kurosawa's most visually striking film. Eight hypnotic and eloquent short segments. Spielberg presented this film in Europe, while Lucas' ILM company did the effects and finally, who wouldn't want to see Scorsese playing Van Gogh? It's the pacing and experiment in time that makes one experience this film in a particular fashion. Like staring at a painting for an extended period of time, we are slowly drawn into each dream world. Beautifully captivating.
