Depp yet again reveals his unique ability to be the seductive yet compassionate idealist, discovering strength in tenderness. Full Review

Imagination is a gift. It bestows power, insight and the ability to dream. It takes courage to dream on a big scale, which is what Emir Kusturica does in Arizona Dream, a wonderfully absurdist comedy... Full Review

...Gorgeous, sometimes surreal visuals....Impeccably lensed...

...Here is a movie containing wonderful sights....What we are dealing with here is a filmmaker who has his own peculiar vision of the world...

...It's a dazzling, daring slice of cockamamie tragicomic Americana envisioned with magic realism...

Rating: 4/5 -- David Lynch, you've got a target on your back. Compelling and strange, worth seeking out if you can find it (which ain't easy).

Rating: B+ -- A trule bizarre, surreal fable, flaunting yet another eccentric performance from the very young and handsome Johnny Depp; Faye Dunaway, as his love interest, and Lili Tomlin are also good. Full Review

Description by

Academy Award-nominee Johnny Depp, Academy Award-winner Faye Dunaway, and the legendary Jerry Lewis headline this offbeat psychodrama about a group of people drawn together in a desert town. Fleeing personal problems to pursue their dreams, they come to learn something about themselves and their relationships with the others around them.

Product Description:

Johnny Depp is Axel, a New York fish tagger who claims to have the ability to listen to the fishes' dreams. One night, he is visited by his wannabe actor brother (Vincent Gallo) and told that his uncle (Jerry Lewis) wants him as his best man in his wedding in Arizona. Axel grew up with his uncle, who owns a Cadillac dealership, and no longer likes him as much as he used to. He doesn't want to attend, but, in a film where suspension of disbelief is required most of the time, he is shanghaied by his brother and driven all the way to Arizona while in a drunken stupor. There, he falls for a wacky and lusty widow (Faye Dunaway), and later her daughter (Lili Taylor). There is much to like about this film; some scenes are pure genius and turn you on in a way that makes you want to stick with it through its many unsure moments. Some of the more brilliant set pieces include Gallo's recreation of the crop-dusting scene from NORTH BY NORTHWEST at an amateur night in a dusty old bar, and a dinner scene set to the music of Django Reinhardt where Taylor tries to commit suicide with a pair of panty hose. A vastly uneven film that sabotages itself at some key moments, but its highs are great enough to recommend it.
