Arizona Dream

"Excellent"

Arizona Dream Review


This bizarro cult film from director Emir Kusturica (best known for Underground) is impossible to describe -- but it starts with a vignette about an Eskimo, zips to New York, and takes Johnny Depp to Arizona to meet his uncle (Jerry Lewis), where he becomes a car salesman before hooking up with a kooky older woman (Faye Dunaway) who lives in the desert with her suicidal stepdaughter (Lili Taylor). What's it all about? Love, employment, dreams, the surreal, traveling, psychic connections... David Lynch, you've got a target on your back. Compelling and strange, worth seeking out if you can find it (which ain't easy).
