I recall Akira Kurosawa's Dreams as one of my first encounters with real art—the 1990 film, presented as a series of verdant, folkloric vignettes inspired by the director's own nocturnal visions, offers an unparalleled perspective on the nature of creation (it even includes a tribute to Vincent van Gogh, who's played by Scorsese). This double feature feels like almost too much bittersweet fantasia to bear: Dreams will screen alongside After Life, Hirokazu Kore-eda's '98 fantasy drama in which recently deceased people, held in limbo, must select one memory to carry with them into the great beyond.
