STARRING: Dennis Quaid, Max
Von Sydow, Christopher Plummer, Eddie Albert, Kate Capshaw, David
1984, 95 Minutes, Directed by: Joe Ruben
Description:The President of the United States is about to be
assassinated in a dream where there is no morning after. Only one man can save
him--a man who must plunge himself into the President's horrendous nightmare.
Dennis Quaid stars as Alex Gardner, a psychically gifted young man recruited to
help Dr. Paul Novotny (Max Von Sydow) and the beautiful Dr. Jane DeVries (Kate
Capshaw) in an experiment to help patients disturbed by menacing nocturnal
illusions. But corrupt high-ranking government official Bob Blair (Christopher
Plummer) has darker plans for Alex's unusual powers. Soon Alex is propelled
inside the President's nightmare, a frightening wasteland of nuclear holocaust,
and locked in a fantastic battle that could only happen in a dream.
Silly 1980s adventure affair in which it is possible for somebody to be inside
somebody else's dreams. Except for a few contrived
surrealistic dream sequences there is little that is memorable about this movie.
