Movie Review: The Science of Sleep

Thanks to two weeks of living off of Caffeine, no sleep and pure adrenalin I have managed to pull my BioChem grade up to a B!

On one of the rare breaks that I gave myself I did manage to catch Michel Gondry's The Science of Sleep. I thought I would love this movie since I am a big fan of Gael Garcia Bernal and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my favorite movies. However this movie was so bad I can’t even start to explain where it went wrong. I guess the premise of the entire movie; a highly imaginative young man who has trouble distinguishing his dreams from reality is kind of goofy to begin with. Nevertheless the movie could have been salvaged if there was some sort of drama or excitement. Instead the movie was one rambling mess of inconsistencies; In one part Gael explains to a co-worker that his father was a French magician and in another scene he talks about living in Mexico with his Mexican father. Plus the fact that there was zero chemistry between Gael and Charlotte Gainsburg only made the movie worse. I am curious has anyone else seen this movie and had the same reaction as I did? My reaction ofcourse being WTF!

First of all, major props on the BioChem grade. Way to go Pix!

I haven't seen SCIENCE OF SLEEP but I was looking forward to it as well since I'm a huge fan of ETERNAL SUNSHINE. My rental queue is ginormous right now so when I finally watch it in 2025 I'll let you know what I thought of the film, lol.

I didn't see this film, but congratulations on that B in BioChem! Seriously, WTG!

Allow me to throw in my congratuations, too!

And thanks for the review. I was going to rent this one. It's funny how they can craft such attractive trailers for duds.

A "B" in a Biochem class pretty much makes you the smartest person I know. Biochem is usually a killer class, right? Way to go!

Second, I haven't seen the movie. I adore Gael Garcia Bernal but with a review like this, I might just stick to watching Y Tu Mama Tambien over and over and over again.

Way to go Pix! Fantastic mark.

When you said "I thought I would love this movie..." I though you would say "because I'm a big fan of sleep" (being as you probably have had very little in the past few weeks)
