      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While it may entrance audiences in search of the thoroughly strange, Dreamland lives down to its title by failing to cohere in any meaningful way.

      Brad P Mobsters and junkies and vampires, oh my. Just like the best jazz songs, Dreamland has to go off the rails a little before it finds the melody. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Amelia B This movie just kept dragging on, ever so slowly. The ending was one of those where you spent all that time watching a movie just to get to the terrible ending. So disappointed. I wouldn't watch it again. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/03/22 Full Review Audience Member I think I will like anything Mchattie is in even if I have to deal with Juliette Lewis. I enjoyed Henry Rollins, he is always good at playing sleaze balls. this was a crazy weird movie. loved the visuals Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/05/22 Full Review Manny P About the only thing interesting about this is Stephen McHatties bizarre wig. Euro trash. It would appear most of the top "critics" can't tell this from Margot Robbies movie of the same name. Rollins ? What a waste of space. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/24/20 Full Review john s SINGLE PEAK Venerable Canuck director Bruce McDonald returns to the big screen with a busy, all you can watch cinema buffet of cult-aspiring dishes. Maybe as a series of small, TV sized bites, this could work, but it becomes quite a taxing muddle in one sitting. The good: Stephen McHattie. His excellent turn helming McDonald's wonderfully crazed "Pontypool" is reason for high anticipation. Not surprisingly, McHattie shines in a dual role tour de force of endless, crackly Clint Eastwood close ups, and tough guy bad assery. The bad: A dual role is seldom a good idea. It is a disruptive smoke and mirrors trick, and proves too clever and distracting for it's own good. More bad: Juliette Lewis, who has the chops to be fabulously sensational, is fabulously awful, awkwardly embracing a despicable role in a volcanic spew of boorish overacting in an unsavoury role. There's more. The list is long. We have a child sex ring. We have Henry Rollins raging. We have a silly vampire. We have a wedding. We have kid gangsters. We have a mess. Brimming with taboo subjects, theatrical violence, absurd sequences, nightclub lighting, an endless stream of odd characters, "Dreamland" is a prickly stab at "Twin Peaks" cultdom. McHattie almost pulls it off, with a quirky performance for the ages that includes a bizarro Chet Baker impersonation. But it's not enough. Exactly what McDonald is trying to achieve here is anyone's guess. How about an insider's heroin trip? Let's go with that. - hipCRANK Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Definitely not a “bad” movie per say . Also nothing new to the genre . A lifelong hit man has a change of heart when his ethical line is crossed 2.4 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/02/20 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review All over the place, but in a kind of interesting way... Nov 11, 2020 Full Review William Hughes AV Club In the end, Dreamland never bothers to decide whether it's trying to be an elegiac, philosophical head trip or an over-the-top action thriller. Rated: C Jun 6, 2020 Full Review Brad Wheeler Globe and Mail Midnight meets madness in a surrealist exercise in existentialism and deft satire that will unsettle the average viewer while exciting those with freakier tastes. Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 6, 2020 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse It makes sense that one of Dreamland's lead characters is a jazz player because McDonald has made a Bebop movie, a deconstructed genre flick with a fast tempo and unexpected story angles with only occasional references to expected genre tropes. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 30, 2021 Full Review Chris Knight National Post To have one Stephen McHattie in your movie may be considered a fortuitous accident. To have two is clearly casting genius. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 11, 2020 Full Review Evan Saathoff Birth.Movies.Death. While perhaps unsatisfying, there is a lot of pleasure to be found occasionally bubbling to the film's surface.
