Watch Rian Johnson's The Psychology of Dream Analysis

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Think Pieces | September 17, 2012 | Comments ()


Now that's a fantastic little story, the sort that wouldn't seem out of place in a Neil Gaiman anthology, with maybe a little glimpse of Morpheus in passing just to add a signature.

It's funny, because it took me two times to watch it, because for whatever reason, the previews and trailers and such for Looper have embedded Rian Johnson's name in my head as a science fiction director. So the first time I watched this, my brain felt like it was trying to find the angle that wasn't there.

"Spaced" was like that for me, by all accounts an excellent show. That is, unless you become convinced before watching that it's supposed to be science fiction and by the third episode you're getting really irritated at just when they're going to find the aliens in the attic.
