Dreams That Money Can Buy (1947)

Films International of America
Diected by Hans Richter
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

A man who discovers that he can see inside the minds of others sells "dreams" from his small apartment to a variety of people. This provides the framework for seven "cases", each based on the works of a contemporary artist. The best is case four, with surrealist art by Marcel Duchamp and music by John Cage. However, the film suffers from a low budget and especially a lack of dialogue: it was filmed silently with voice over narration, a poor substitute.
