Dreams & Memory

Dreams and memories are fickle things and can send you spiraling into wormholes and questioning reality, not to mention your sanity. David Lynch is no stranger to the realm of dreams, and he takes his explorations to sexy extremes in Mulholland Drive. And as if memory wasn’t mercurial enough, try keeping up with Christopher Nolan’s perennially re-watchable Memento, which makes all memories suspect, and backwards. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the bright spot in the series: Michel Gondry’s visually stunning and trippy film is the ideal piece of cinematic candy for Valentine’s Day.

And to top it all off, superstar director Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers, Showgirls) will appear with a screening of his cult classic—the Schwarzeneger-laden, original Total Recall in a fabulous DCP restoration! Tickets for Total Recall are $12 general/$8 students and are available at CornellCinemaTickets.com. Mark your calendars; this is the series of your dreams.
