From 8 1/2 to The Big Lebowski, the most famous dreams and nightmares in movies collide in Subconscious Cinema, a new supercut from Gabriel Adelman, a.k.a. Dreamscience Films. Weaving together surreal snippets from the minds of Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, and the Coen Brothers, Adelman doesn't simply gather his clips into a monotonous line of decontextualized scenes, he weaves their most climactic or memorable moments (think Saddam Hussein giving The Dude his golden bowling shoes) into a dream sequence of its very own. "They say dreaming's dead. No one does it anymore," he writes in the video's description. "It’s not dead, it's just its been forgotten. I’m trying to change all that and I hope you are too."
