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.

Trying To Stop A Gang Rape At An Outdoor Cinema

I did not get much sleep last night and most of my memories of the dreams that I did have slipped from my mind except for part of the end of my next to last dream.

This dream took place during maybe late afternoon or early evening, I am not sure if I rode with someone else or how I got there, but I ended up out in the countryside in the wilderness (forest) in a clearing where there was a small area where a film was going to be shown so it was probably an outdoor cinema.

The area where the screen was or where the film would be projected was on the ground and it was not that big, and it was possibly under a slightly covered area that probably had concrete.

Slowly people were arriving and were standing around talking as they waited for the movie to start, there were mostly men there but there were some women there as well, and among the small crowd I saw the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and I possibly talked with him briefly and / or I somewhat knew him somehow like we had met before but I can not remember.

After that I remember seeing and talking with my former male classmate JC, I remember him noticing Mr. Schwarzenegger in the crowd and he asked me if that was really him, and I remember telling my former classmate JC that it was really him and I told him something about Mr. Schwarzenegger that I can not remember that I somehow knew from either being told by him directly and / or I heard it from someone else.

At some point as we talked it was almost time to start watching the movie so everyone started to slowly move to where they wanted to sit, I remember several women sitting on the concrete floor in front of the screen, and slowly some groups of rough-looking men started moving in behind them.

The mood and atmosphere of the dream changed suddenly and dramatically, I felt and sensed negativity and danger and ill-will et cetera coming from the groups of men moving in behind the women who had sat in the front (not all the women sat there, only some did), and I noticed that their facial expressions and body language had changed and seemed very rapey and I feared for the safety of all the women who were there.

The men started smile and laugh and to make sounds and probably said some inappropriate things to the women as they moved in behind them closely, the women had their backs to the men and they looked happy and ready for the movie so they had no idea of the danger moving in behind them, and the men got so close to the women that they were touching them.

I told my former classmate JC that I felt that something bad was going to happen and that I was going to start moving in to stop it if necessary, and so he started to move forward with me to join me in defending the women if necessary.

The men started touching the women and groping the women, the women told them to stop and started trying to resist, but the men did not care as more and more men moved in on them so they were completely surrounded and there were several rows of men around them so they had nowhere to go.

I was too busy moving forward to help the women in the front so I am not sure if the rest of the women behind me were being attacked or not as well, I do not remember seeing Mr. Schwarzenegger at this point but he was possibly further behind me, but who knows.

I felt that these men were going to rape the women, it seemed that most of the men there were joining in, and so maybe only my former classmate JC and me were going to try to stop them so we were greatly outnumbered and there were too many women for us to protect at the same time so the situation was very bad.

I remember telling the men to leave them alone but they paid no attention to me so I started pushing and pulling men out-of-the-way trying to reach the women through the rows of men blocking my path, and there were so many men in the way trying to attack the women that I could no longer see the women but I heard them screaming and yelling get off me and don’t touch me et cetera like they were trying to resist the attack.

The situation was very bad and I started trying to reach them as quickly as I could as I fought my way through the crowd of men.

It reminded me of a scene from the film Inception when the character Ariadne started to get grabbed by the projections (dream characters) of the character Dom Cobb as Cobb tried to stop them:

The situation was a worst case scenario now, there were so many men in the way that we would not be able to reach all of the women in time, and even if we could it was not likely that we could fight all of the men and protect all of the women and even if we could I probably did not have an automobile so I would not be able to get the women to safety and my former classmate JC had an automobile but all of us would not be able to fit inside of it and we were out in the countryside so help would not arrive in time.

I woke up before I could reach any of the women in the front.

The end,

My Former Classmate MT + An Outdoor Cinema And A Drive-Through Fast Food Restaurant Front Organization + Former Spies = ?

Source: Wikipedia

I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of the end of my last dream unfortunately, so most of the dream is forgotten, and so it will not make much sense; but the dream took place during the day with my former male classmate MT, an unknown man, and I driving back from another city to a slightly fictional version of the city of D.

We were in my former classmate MT’s automobile and he was driving and for some strange reason instead of driving me home once we reached the city of D, my former classmate MT dropped me off at a field off the right side of the highway probably before you get to GA down a somewhat quiet road, and he was going to come back and pick me up later I think.

In this field was a fictional popular outdoor cinema next to a small fictional popular drive-through fast food restaurant next to a small whitish-colored one-story house that probably belonged to the owner of these two businesses, and there were lots of people at both businesses.

My memory is unclear but somehow I ended up being in a blackish-colored SUV (sport utility vehicle) that was next to another blackish-colored SUV which were both in a parking area by the small house where it was between the drive-through and the outdoor cinema, and so you could go to either of these three places or just watch the film from the automobiles.

I must have somewhat known one of the people in one of the automobiles or that person also knew a man who I knew named Jack who was either the character Jack Bauer from the television series 24 or a man who was somewhat like him, and several of the people in both automobiles were former spies now working for a man with whitish colored skin with dark-colored hair and a somewhat thin dark-colored mustache who was probably the owner of both businesses and the small house.

The oldest former spy was an old woman who spoke English with a British accent who reminded me of the actress Helen Mirren as her character Agent Victoria Winters from the film Red (2010 Film), the next to oldest former spy was a woman with whitish colored skin with long yellowish-colored hair wearing a grayish-colored suit and pants with a whitish-colored buttoned dress shirt who was the newest former spy working for the owner and she knew the man named Jack/Jack Bauer who I knew as well, and the youngest was possibly not a former spy at all but she had been taught by the oldest former spy and she was a woman with pale whitish colored skin with maybe reddish/brownish-colored hair who slightly reminded me of the character Alice Morgan from the BBC television show Luther.

I remember talking with them and watching some of the film that was playing at the outdoor cinema, I mostly talked with the former spy who also knew Jack/Jack Bauer, and she seemed like an honest/hard-working/trustworthy/and more person who tries to follow her moral code and do the right thing; and Jack had told her about the owner who he once worked with, and so she got the job thanks to his suggestions about the owner which were positive.

The drive-through fast food restaurant had a sale on fried chicken nuggets so I asked the others about it, they had some negative things to say but it was not about the fried chicken nuggets, but about the misleading and confusing sale; and they explained that the fried chicken nuggets were free, but only if you bought one or more particular/certain items on the menu.

They got a call from the owner, who was in the small house, and he gave them a mission and so I got out of the automobile to give them some privacy and so that they could leave if necessary and to go to the drive-through fast food restaurant to look at their menu and ask them about how the sale worked so that I could decide if I wanted to get any food/drinks or not.

I was able to see what was going on with them even though I was no longer with them, the newest and next to oldest former spy started asking questions to the oldest former spy about the mission because something did not seem right to her, and she was starting to suspect that the owner’s businesses were just part of an illegal front organization involved in many illegal activities; and the oldest spy asked everyone else to leave the automobile so that the two of them could talk alone.

The newest former spy asked all the right questions and she was able to put the pieces/clues together realizing that she was correct so she wanted no part in this and she quit and she was going to report them for their crimes, the oldest spy offered her some food/drink while talking to her about this trying to convince her to not do that, but it was not working so at some point the newest former spy who just quit started choking and bumps appeared on her face or under her skin.

It seemed that the oldest former spy had poisoned her, she said that something was wrong and that she needed help, and the oldest former spy told her to lay down in the back seat so that she could go get help and that it probably nothing serious; but once she laid down the oldest former spy pulled out a grayish/silverish-colored revolver and shot her in her forehead killing her instantly, and blood splattered a bit and you could see the gunshot wound/hole in her forehead.

The gunshot was not very loud surprisingly/oddly and no one on the outside of the automobile seemed to notice, the youngest woman got back into the automobile and she noticed the dead body, and she asked the oldest former spy what she had done because the owner wanted her alive and on their side; and the oldest former spy explained what had happened, but the youngest woman explained that the owner would be very angry and that he had big plans for that woman and that she was important to the mission that he had given them.

The youngest woman left the automobile and she walked into the small house to tell the owner what had happened and to ask him what they were going to do about the mission now, the house was a rectangular shape with a small wide entrance room with entrance several doors and several glass doors with thin see-through whitish colored curtains blowing in the wind from the partly opened doors that separated the living room/dining room/kitchen, and the owner was in the living room talking with someone on his mobile phone.

The youngest woman and the owner seemed to be in a physical/romantic relationship so that was part of the reason she went to talk with him about the situation to hopefully reduce his anger about the situation, after his mobile phone conversation he greeted the woman, and he angrily grabbed her by the neck and he pulled her into the living room so that no one outside could see them.

He said that he had just gotten a call about the death of the woman, he assumed that she had killed her, and so he pulled out a pistol and he put it on her head angrily yelling at her about how he said that he wanted her alive and that he wanted her on their side and how she was important to the mission; and he was possibly about to shoot her, she was not worried at all, and she calmly told him that she did not kill her.

He was surprised and he asked who killed her then, she told him that it was the oldest former spy and she explained what had happened, and then he started to calm down a bit but he was still angry; and he wanted to talk to the oldest former spy about this later, but for now they needed to try to figure out what to do about the mission.

The owner and her talked about the many illegal activities that he/they were involved in, their legal businesses were just a front to hide their illegal activities/businesses, and before they continued their conversation the woman called the oldest former spy telling her to get rid of the dead body; and the oldest former spy left to take care of that.

I left the drive-through fast food restaurant after deciding to not get anything probably or maybe I did get something but I can not remember, I saw the blackish colored SUVs leaving, and so I stood outside waiting for my former classmate MT to come back to pick me up; but I woke up.

The end,
