Raúl Ruiz's Dreams


Raúl Ruiz on inventive top form, including narrative games about making a feature about pirates; old religious opinions; retired nuns who run a brothel.

Our take

For newcomers to the great Chilean fabulist Raúl Ruiz, this picture has stories-within-stories covering nearly the whole range of Ruiz’s diverse passions, from pulp to intellectual. An oneiric fantasy, coming to you as if from a dream half-remembered.
