The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

An arresting film, that is better than your average low-budget feature and is more entertaining than any action-packed gore fests Hollywood produces. The acting isn't brilliant, but it ain't half-bad either. Especially Gallardo's performance as the title character. He can be both charming and brutal in the same scene. The cinematography is excellent. The dream sequences in the film have an amazing surreal quality to them. True, this is no Citizen Kane, but Rodriguez's debut film is something that should not be overlooked by the modern moviegoer.
