Michael Postle’s picks “The Science of Sleep” and “The Fall” lift us from the “Escape From Tomorrow” fugue.
“The Fall” is a gem that I hadn’t heard about until Mickey suggested it. I love its concentration on imagery and the its mutable narrative. I’m glad that I’ve seen something else now from Michel Gondry besides “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” and I’m surprised to find that my already high opinion of “Eternal Sunshine” went up a notch despite not being overly fond of “The Science of Sleep.” It was fun to watch, but left me cold afterwards. -JH
