Nicolas Cage is in your dreams, and their dreams, and theirs, and theirs, and theirs….in the latest release from A24: Dream Scenario.
With Sick of Myself‘s Kristoffer Borgli writing and directing and Hereditary‘s Ari Aster producing, the film sees Cage as Paul Matthews, a man suddenly appearing in millions of strangers’ dreams — and yeah, their nightmares too. It’s the kind of stardom few would really want, and Paul has to find his way through his newfound fame and subsequent experiences with cancel culture.
As Mashable film editor Kristy Puchko writes in her review, “While the first hour offers an intriguing premise, Borgli burns off possibilities and interest with his ghoulish plot developments that make for increasingly wonky metaphors. By the third act, he’s flinging in lazy criticisms of everything from influencers to wellness culture and tech bros.”
Dream Scenario is in cinemas Nov. 10.
