dream.20061027: class, interrupted

by Rob Friesel

A dark, underground structure.  There are huge circular, collapsible blades for cutting and crushing.  A doctor (mortician? the city’s medical examiner?) is associated with this space.  We’ve been investigating him.  He’s the killer?  They’re already dead when they come down here?  We expect a grisly scene; we already know that this is where bodies are […]

A surreal head trip from a brilliant Hungarian director, Kontroll follows the troubled ticket inspector Bulscú Bulcsú and his crew through some subterranean tribulations as a hooded figure pushes travelers into the paths of on-coming […]
