Please try again later. This movie is the latter. Format: Prime Video Verified Purchase. Just didn't see any point to this movie. The acting is okay but the story is just stupid. Too many side-line plots. What does a letter from the pilot's co-worker do for the plot? For that matter was does the making of the lake have to do with it? Could have been any lake. In addition, although Annette B's character looks fit enough she does some remarkably physical things in the movie.
The "care facility" has a ludicrous security system. Just too much hoakum for me. And what kind of example is dead mommy setting for her dead daughter. Can't they just be happy? I have always loved movies and books about the paranormal and especially when it concerns a psychic--and this fits the bill of both.
I don't know why some people gave this a bad review because most gave their reason that this film was "unbelievable. If I wanted to only watch films that were believable, I would watch documentaries and other non-fiction movies. I found this movie very suspenseful and it kept my interest right up to the end. At times you could not help but feel sorry for Robert Downey Jr. Downey really played his part and was a very believable villain. If nothing else this film makes you aware of how we need desperately to protect children and prevent child abuse--then just maybe we would not have so many mentally ill adults walking around later in life and committing violent crimes.
And last but not least, we need to make sure there are some types of laws and rules are in place that would make sure that the mentally ill got the right kind of treatments instead of treatments that are more or less is just more abuse--such as shock treatments. Would I recommend this movie to others--Yes, and I have done so to family and friends. Acting was good, Robert Downey jr. Was perfect, but the ending was just dumb, I mean I get it Vivian killed several ppl, but he had been thru so much in his childhood, he didn't choose to be who he was.
He deserved a better ending. On the other hand the psychiatrist needed to have a brutal ending for not believing. This is a strange and visually lovely nightmare. It's very much like a fever dream moving along at a brisk pace and in face, appears to be rushing right up to the end. If anything can be faulted it's that the third act doesn't maintain the momentum of the rest of the film and that there are some pretty lightly written characterizations.
That said, this is a film full of symbolism and for fans of symbolist art, this is a must see. It's one of the very underrated 90's films and def worth a look. One person found this helpful. Somehow I feel that if this film had been even stranger, it may have been more critically popular. Had it not bothered with as linear a storyline and just followed the dream-logic plotlines it may have been hailed as a David Lynch-like fairy tale nightmare; add more violence and it could be a Dario Argento film.
But instead we have something by Neil Jordan, who gives this film more wonder and magic albeit dark than anyone else could. I think it's a great film.

See, it's called In Dreams, not In Logic. Its surreality is its strength, staying visually spectacular at all times and boosted by an absolutely great performance by Annette Bening. Moments of opportunity or clarity claire-ity? The film's general feel is continuously reinforced by the eerie flooded dream village in the reservoir, and the fairy tale orchard.
This is a Grim tale alright, but its beautiful, trippy and saturated in atmosphere. Killer ending too, closing a disturbingly satisfying thriller by a masterful director.

View All Critic Reviews Oct 10, I can understand why people wouldn't like this film, considering a complex concept is neutered by poor execution and great actors give in to overacting more than once. Still, this film is hypnotic and dreamlike, many of the shots are pure art. If you appreciate masterful ambiance, this film has it, just don't expect to be rapt by the story.
May 22, Frustrating initially as Bening's character virtually makes every dumb bad movie choice i. Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. May 23, Wow, this is bad. Ok, I quite liked the production design, and especially liked the opening underwater sequence and the scene where Bening drives her car off the cliff near the beginning. But this is all flashy style over any kind of substance. I can't believe Neil Jordan made this film, it's utterly risible but too dull to be enjoyable, and doesn't even have internal logic.
I'm angry I wasted my time with this rubbish. Daniel P Super Reviewer. May 05, Not a bad effort at all really - Annette Benning was convincing and Robert Downey Jnr was entertaining, he did what he could with the character The plotline is a bit far fetched but if you overlook that or go with it this is an enjoyable psychological thriller.
