Movie Info

Filmmaker Ken McMullen examines the political and aesthetic conventions of his chosen medium in this experimental drama. Philosopher Bernard Stiegler (appearing as himself) is approached by an actress and journalist (Gabriella Wright) with a provocative question: "Can the cinema be dangerous?" The woman's question isn't intended to be either flippant or metaphorical; she wants to know if it is possible for a movie to genuinely harm people, and if so, she wants to enlist Steigler's help in making a picture that can be used as a weapon against terrorists and those intent upon imposing their cultural viewpoint upon the world. As the philosopher and the actress discuss film as a weapon, a police detective (Dominique Pinon) looks for the actress, wanting to stop her before she takes the law into her own hands, even though the notion of right and wrong, guilt and innocence has ceased to have a clear meaning. An Organization of Dreams was an official selection at the 2009 BFI London Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for An Organization of Dreams

All Critics (1)

Too often Stiegler's insights come across as banal or sweeping - philosophy for beginners - and the attempt to embed its ideas cinematically feels stilted, self-conscious rather than unconscious.
