Even if there were no afterlife, the beauty of “Dreams” may bring you more from this one. I had forgotten that this film was just as powerful as it was beautiful! It won an Oscar for its phenomenal special effects, and seeing it in 1080p HD on a larger 16 X 9 televison did full justice to the countless scenes of transcendent beauty unique to this film, and to its horrors. Blue Ray more than justified its cost, even though I already had it on DVD (4:3). Few of us do not dream of an eternity with our loved ones, and that most special one of all, our soul mate. While I, like many, have some "family issues" that make a film like this more poignant, I can think of few who would be immune to its magic. But, this is no ordinary love story. Its hard and heart wrenching, dealing with death, despair, and especially suicide. But, whatever your views on the afterlife, this film may rekindle your passion for the passions that should matter most in your life. Every family should have a "family night" with their teens that starts early ... leaving plenty time for discussion afterwards. Guys should watch it alone and with Kleenex to hide the evidence. (Truth be told, I didn’t just cry ... my heart actually hurt.) As to Robin Williams being its star, well, he may be a comedian in another life, but here he is no joke. "Dreams" has the "eye candy" of Avatar, but also the weight to shake your universe for an eternity. It would be sad for Christians to be afraid to embrace this film’s strengths due to an option it presents in the closing minute. NOT A FILM FOR CHILDREN, BECAUSE SOME OF "DREAMS" WOULD BE A NIGHTMARE.
