THE DREAMERS (TIFF Lightbox) – I had just been complaining about movie snobs while waiting for this film to start. Little did I know that the dreamers in this film are just that kind of movie viewers; they have very specific ideas about what is good and just and right in film. With real life, they’re not so good… This is a beautiful film, if a bit scary. Watch it after you see INCEPTION – it makes a narrative difference.
