A Coen Brothers-Like Movie Trailer

Source: IMDb

This dream was a longer and more interesting dream with several parts and some symbolism, but I only managed to save some quick text notes of it before going back to sleep.

This dream was possibly partly inspired by a ScreenPrism video called You Know It’s The Coen Brothers IF…:

There were at least three or more parts to this dream but one or more parts I can not remember anything about now.

One part of the dream involved something to do with a video game, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

A second part of the dream involved my dad telling me (possibly by mobile phone) that one of his coworkers at The BP School Board said that I stole a table or something when I was working at The BP School Board, and this was not true at all and seemed to just be something that his coworker thought but was going around saying like it was true.

Me and my dad thought this was ridiculous, I did not steal anything, and I only worked briefly at with the school board a few times years ago back when I was in college and one time when I was out of college; but from what my dad told me it sounded like his coworker possibly falsely assumed that I was still working for the school board.

My dad said that he was not happy about this false rumor and said so to his coworker, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

Another part of the dream took place during the day at an indoor / outdoor cinema (movie theater), and at some point I am sitting at a table with at least two men with one who reminded me of the actor Gael García Bernal and the other was or reminded me of another actor with light-color skin whose name I can not remember but he has been in several comedy movies.

We talked as we waited, I am not sure what all happened, but at some point there was a women’s basketball press conference outside in the area where we were.

My aunt SE seemed to be there for maybe a contract signing as an official member of a professional women’s basketball team, her team and coach and my aunt JE and several other people were with her, and after some photographs et cetera she got to talk at the microphone.

It was embarrassing because my aunt SE started acting very unprofessional and she was cursing and using foul language and she even said the word n###a during her celebration speech or whatever, but her embarrassing celebration speech got interrupted by a female member of a rival basketball team with dark-brown skin with black hair who was in the crowd with her team and coach et cetera.

The woman in the crowd started insulting my aunt SE and my aunt JE, my aunt SE was not having that, and so they started arguing and then they ran at each other to fight but the security and their teams and coaches et cetera held them back and formed a wall between them during the chaos.

After this embarrassing situation I remember being in maybe the indoor part of the indoor / outdoor movie theater, and the movie starts.

Trailers for other movies area shown, and one of them was pretty interesting and maybe somewhat seemed like a Coen Brothers movie.

The trailer for the movie started out like a comedy, there was a large man who somewhat reminded me of an actor whose name I can not remember combined with the character Hank Anderson from the video game Detroit: Become Human, and he was sitting in a movie theater about to watch a movie.

A woman with light-color skin with short yellow hair who seemed to possibly be cosplaying suddenly sat right next to the man, the man was annoyed by this because his entire row was empty but the woman moved all the way to the center to sit by him, and she was smiling and leaning closer to him.

The man could hear the woman’s thoughts, he could read minds I guess, and she liked him and was trying to get close to him and wanted to ask him on a date et cetera but he was not interested and the woman sounded annoying and full of energy and like a fangirl as she talked to herself in her mind.

The man leaned away from her annoyingly, the woman leaned closer to him smiling, and then the man started responding to the woman’s thoughts out-loud basically letting her know that he could read her mind and that he was not interested and that he wanted some space and just wanted to enjoy the movie.

The woman did not let this stop her and she started talking to him quickly with a lot of energy, this annoyed the man even more, and she leaned on him at some point even after he kept trying to reject her.

The trailer faded to black for a moment at the man narrated about how that was the first time they met, somehow they ended up going on a date (probably because the woman would not leave him alone), and surprisingly it went well and they started dating.

There was a quick montage of their relationship, they dated, they got married, et cetera and they seemed happy so the trailer went from comedy to romance.

After the montage it showed them in present day as a married couple still, even though their relationship was good, the man was currently not happy and was deep in philosophical and depressive thought and you could hear his thoughts that were about life various deep topics.

His wife noticed this was trying to talk to him as they rode in the back of a car that was driving down a highway during the day, the man had been like this for a while recently, and the wife would try to talk to him about it.

They would have a bit of back and forth until the man returned to his thoughts, the entire mood of the trailer was different now, and so it was not comedy or romance now and it was serious and philosophical and symbolic et cetera and you could feel the mood thanks to the directing and atmosphere and his inner dialogue et cetera.

At some point the man asks to be let out of the car to walk, the wife tries to get him to stay but he refuses, and then he starts walking on side of the highway deep in thought.

It kind of felt like he was thinking about life and his life, and possibly considering just giving up on life or questioning what is the point or something but I can not remember.

I am not sure if this happened after the trailers or at some point during the actual movie that we were there to see, either way, the movie was paused so that we could take a break.

The man at my table who reminded me of Gael García Bernal got up and walked to the stage to perform for the crowd during the break, he introduced himself, and then he started playing the violin and singing to my surprise.

An employee at the movie theater fell during the performance as he was walking up or down the stairs or something, but then I woke up shortly after this.

The end,
