Single Course[edit]

It seems un-encyclopaedic to mention a specific course offered at one school. The University of Western Ontario isn't famous for its film or literature departments.


Doesn't this article lack quite a lot of material from Slavoj Žižek's The Pervert's Guide to Cinema, which is both Freudian and semiotic? -- (talk) 15:06, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Needs work[edit]

The long list of directors whose films have oneiric qualities is so disorganized that it is not useful - at least organize alphabetically, so readers could easily see the names. Better would be chronologically, since film does have a progression and directors often refer to earlier works by other directors; or by genre, since references are made to film noir, etc.; or even by nation, for readers unfamiliar with the directors, for some orientation to them and a quick idea as to whether they might be able to view their films; or something.Parkwells (talk) 15:46, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Citation page#[edit]

I have "The Cinema Effect" on order and I'll add the page number as soon as it arrives.—SpintendoTalk 08:41, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

I've added what information I was able to find to this article. The areas that specify [citation needed] are those which were added from another editor, and not myself.— SpintendoTalk 23:40, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

There is still a missing part of this article. The discussion relating to how people identify with film through their experiences of dreaming—that part I believe is covered now a lot better. But the second part, which is the analysis of how dreams and the dreamstate itself is depicted in films, that's not covered yet, although those are some good examples other editors have listed.
