"'Ten Nights of Dreams " is a compilation of 10 short films based on stories by Japanese novelist Natsume Soseki and it includes the penultimate work from master Kon Ichikawa and Akio Jissoji. In a representative way, they revolve around insanity and dreams. Like almost all collective works, somewhat irregular; but there is a very macabre and fascinating unity in the whole. The funny thing about these short films is that they have weird protagonist and the story revolves around their dreams, fears and anxieties. The animation segment by Yoshitaka Amano-Masaaki Kawahara was possibly my least favourite of the 10 tales; it felt a little deflated by the end with the English dialogues. The last tenth segment by Yudai Yamaguchi, which is a pig spectacle and the was definitely the best one, with the remaining 8 falling somewhere in Good to decent graph. Nobuhiro Yamashita's fish segment and Nobuhiro Yamashita's rag monster needs to be mentioned for being super weird. All the short films in " Ten Nights of Dreams " seemed very good to me. Each story explores a different area of Japanese cinema and although each director gives it their unique style, they mesh very well as a single movie. The group of directors, writers, and wonderful cast make this one of the best short film anthologies I've seen in a long time.
