Coffee and Cigarrettes
Right, way too many film referencing going on without me lately! Coffee and cigarrettes is a great film made up of about 10 different 8-10 minute conversations between people drinking coffee and, yes, you guessed it, smoking cigarrettes. One of the topics that pops up is dreaming and how it is affected by drinking large amounts of coffee. I think it is Iggy pop (this film has an enourmous plethora of celebs including my favourite scene with the hysterical Steve Coogan) that says he likes to drink copius amounts of coffee because it makes him dream in fast forward. This is then repeated by another actor later in the film.
(here comes my clever link that justifies me posting this!!!) Does anyone here find doing certain things or eating or drinking certain things affect their dreams? The reel of film that is our life, is it including our dreams or is it on pause while we're asleep?? If our dreams are part of it why is it that large amounts of coffee would cause it a fast forward result of our projected images? Oh Bill Murray's in it too, great scene with members of the Wu Tang Clan!
