I saw this film several years ago and even today I recount it's imagery as perhaps among the most beautiful I've even seen. It's certainly not for everyone, but if you are a person who's mind is more sighted toward symbolism rather then realism at times, then this film is unforgettable. The aesthetics are lush and poetic, and the vignette's are touching if you allow yourself to be receptive to what Kurasawa's putting before you. The Van Gogh vignette is particularly beautiful. I've seen several Kurasawa films, enjoyed them all, but "Dreams" really captured my imagination in a very endearing way.
