Movie Info

Agatha has a problem: is she awake or asleep? Is she dreaming or is this reality? What starts out, innocently enough, as a cocktail party turns into a nightmare when Agatha suddenly finds herself paralyzed from the waist down. Seeking help from an eccentric group of doctors she suffers through a series of sexual and scientific experiments that send her on a journey to another planet: Planet Earth. But is this the same Earth that Agatha is from - or is it the Earth of her dreams?Written by legendary theater artist, Richard Foreman, PLANET EARTH: DREAMS revolves around the desire to escape - not to a Dream world - but to a mode of consciousness in which one is able to function in real life with the same mental freedom the dream mind has available in the realm of sleep. -- © Start Here Films

Critic Reviews for Planet Earth: Dreams

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

Most audience members will soon find themselves in a state where they'll be able to compare their own dreams, no doubt favorably, to those on the screen before them.

Even the impudently mesmerizing star presence (and songs) of gamine Cynthia Hopkins cannot elevate this surprisingly staid slice of surrealism beyond the realm of the curious.

Cryptic but good-looking feature.

Top Critic

Isn't very successful at evoking the dream state, but does a good job of inducing it.

Foreman aficionados may want to keep the curtains of this theater drawn, and listen as his fertile lines suggest what could have been: 'The space between the trees is blank enough for something interesting to happen in it.'

One of a kind, turning Foreman trademarks such as self-satirical acting and out-of-nowhere music into powerful elements of an outlandish story.
