My Thoughts:
More a love-story than a time-travel story. It must be the movie in my collection which requires the most suspension of disbelieve of how the time-traveling is done, but it works here.

Rating:

What Dreams May Come, a review by Rich


What Dreams May Come





Morbid and downbeat, I found this film a struggle to sit through and lost interest early on.
Visually attractive, the storyline was flimsy, and it is best described as strange and complicated. A mixture of dead and live people inhabit a psychadelic screen, and the question of purgatory is forefront to the movie.
This did not grab my attention one iota.
