It’s 2035, and the government is taxing our dreams. Dream about a buffalo last night? That’ll run you 25 cents. Plus 17 cents for the violin. And that’s on top of all the ads and product placement interrupting your REM. James Preble is a mild-mannered government lackey, assigned to audit the dreams of an eccentric artist who’s been dodging her payments. The elderly Bella welcomes James into her remote farmhouse, where he sets about combing through decades of her recorded dreams, prepared to nickel and dime her. But as he wades into her unconscious, he meets and falls for her younger self. As James pursues the young Bella through a mind-melting fantasia of dreamscapes, he uncovers some unsettling conspiracies infiltrating our subconscious. A true psychedelic charmer, Strawberry Mansion boasts a dazzling handcrafted aesthetic, conjuring its unique universe through colorful props and costumes rather than lifeless CGI. The thrift-shop look is a supreme asset, creating a cinematic experience with more visual imagination and wit per frame than any generic blockbuster. 2021 Sundance Film Festival. “Enchanting, mind-bending and heartwarming… feels like walking through another’s dream. Simply put, Strawberry Mansion is sensational, strange, and sophisticatedly sweet” (Kristy Puchko, rogerebert.com). (MK)
