Though entertaining at times, it's not everyone's dream pic.

Lewis is only slightly awful, and he and Depp have a nice rapport; Dunaway gives a particularly juicy performance; and Taylor is simply amazing, seemingly able to transform herself physically for every role she plays.

A peculiar and entrancing gem.

Kusturica grafts his sometimes unwieldy Europe-inflected concerns onto brash American landscapes with mixed results. Much is made of dreams that, either spoken of at length or illustrated, are offered in lieu of character development.

The first 'American' film by the director of Time of the Gypsies is every bit as bizarre and imaginative as his earlier work, although it's also maddeningly indulgent and erratic.
Emanuel Levy

A trule bizarre, surreal fable, flaunting yet another eccentric performance from the very young and handsome Johnny Depp; Faye Dunaway, as his love interest, and Lili Tomlin are also good.

David Lynch, you've got a target on your back. Compelling and strange, worth seeking out if you can find it (which ain't easy).
| Original Score: 4/5

Even at its full length, showing off a more seductive rhythm and the buoyant humanism that is this director's calling card, it remains as ripe a subject for therapy as for criticism.

Downright odd comedy that gets better with age.

Johnny Depp and Faye Dunaway must enjoy working together. Perhaps they also enjoy making incomprehensibly inane movies, because that is what Arizona Dream is.

Depp yet again reveals his unique ability to be the seductive yet compassionate idealist, discovering strength in tenderness.

You can't stop watching because nobody in the audience, and possibly nobody on the screen, has any idea what's going to happen next.

Imagination is a gift. It bestows power, insight and the ability to dream. It takes courage to dream on a big scale, which is what Emir Kusturica does in Arizona Dream, a wonderfully absurdist comedy...

There is so much to like in Arizona Dream that you can't help wondering why you don't like it better.
