and the ones with cows’ hooves?

Dreams that money can buy” (1947) was directed by Hans Richter, but also features dream scenes by Max Ernst, Fernand Léger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder and Richter himself. To me, Ernst’s contribution “Desire” is possibly the best dream sequence ever put on film in the history of cinema, though Luis Buñuel, Jean Cocteau, Maya Deren, Federico Fellini and David Lynch come very close, obviously … and I’m sure I’m forgetting lots more – e.g. Tarkovsky & Lebowski! (I actually first discovered “Desire” via David Lynch presents Ruth, roses and revolver”, a tv documentary Mr. Lynch presented for the BBC’s Arena series in 1987.)


You can view “Desire” (and the rest of the filmhere (8’04” > 12’45”) or, better still, via the Internet Archive (8’05” > 12’47”) … or find the BFI dvd. And last but not least:

Hey and what’s yoùr favourite dream scene in movies?
