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.

I had some clear dreams with clear dialogue and clear details that I had remembered from my dreams from last night but the weather was nice and cold and I slept very well/comfortably and I got caught in a quicksand-like sleep/dream/daydreaming/thinking cycle (where I can not get out of bed and I keep waking up and/or going back to sleep dreaming and/or daydreaming and/or thinking and/or just sleeping, but last night I was mostly semi-awake thinking/daydreaming about two of my dreams but I probably would occasionally go back to sleep and wake up and this cycle continued for maybe two hours), and so I forgot most of my dreams and most of the details/dialogue from the only two dreams that I barely remember part of.

Dream 1

I remember part of the end of one dream that might have been a continuation from another dream (I also remember a part of a dream or this dream where I remember someone refusing to do something but that is all that I can remember of that/this part) where I seemed to be at a school in a hallway that had at least two bathrooms that I used many times in one or more dreams from last night that I can not remember, I went to these two bathrooms so many times that I instantly recognized them, but when I went into the bathroom this time there were some female nurses setting up something in the bathroom to my surprise; and they recognized me because I often used this bathroom and the other bathroom, and we talked about this and about what they were setting up.

I can not remember what they were setting up exactly but I know that it was something medical, and so I volunteer to be their first patient/test subject/whatever; and they started a medical procedure or something on me that I can not remember.

The next part that I remember might be from another dream but I will assume that it is from the same dream, and I went to a classroom that might have been in one of the same two bathrooms; and some of my former classmates like JF and CR were in the classroom, and I remember us talking/hanging out at some point.

My former classmate CR had a violin that she was practicing with, she had been learning to play the violin, and so she was probably trying to play a song; but my former classmate JF was in a joking mood and he made a friendly insulting joke about my former classmate CR trying to play and learn the violin, and he jokingly said something like:

“Violin? What kind of idiot plays the violin? Nobody cares about the violin, what a loser, learn to play a real musical instrument or learn something useful.”.

My former classmate JF and some of the other students laughed a bit because they/we knew that it was just a joke because we all had goofed/joked around before this point; but my former classmate CR did not realize that it was just a joke, she got angry/sad and she angrily yelled something at my former classmate JF, and she probably ran away with her violin crying a bit.

We were surprised and we felt bad for her and my former classmate JF ran after her trying to explain that it was just a joke and that he was sorry, and I decided to run after them to help with the situation; and somehow I found my former classmate CR hiding down the end of a sunken concrete walkway that led to an underground area/entrance, and I guess my former classmate JF ran past this area not noticing her hiding.

I tried to explain to her that my former classmate JF was only joking and that he felt bad that she did not realize this/that and that he was trying to find her to apologize to her, and she started to tell me how she had tried hard to learn to play violin and how most other people did not seem to care or support her; and so that is why his joke hurt her so badly, and she explained a few other personal things to me.

At some point to help her learn to get over the situation and/or to help her learn to deal with certain situations that I can not remember I decided to teach her something that was symbolic and that involved learning/using dream powers, maybe I somewhat realized that it was a dream and maybe it went semi-lucid but I am not sure, I just remember telling her that I wanted her to use her dream powers to throw me through the air at a large stone boulder to stop it from rolling on us; but she said that she did not know how to do that, a large stone boulder came rolling toward us from the top of the sunken walkway, and so I showed her what to do.

The large stone boulder was about to hit us, she still felt that she could not do it, and so I told her that she had to do it now or we would die (I hoped that a life and death situation would force her to try her best, and if she failed I had the power to stop the boulder); and so she did it, she used her dream powers to shoot me through the air at the boulder, and I punched it back up the walkway and it probably broke into many pieces.

We celebrated her success and she was surprised that she did it, we probably went into the underground entrance into a gym-like room to talk, and maybe she started to play her violin for me; but I woke up with the song that she was playing still in/on my mind and/or the song Symphony 1 In The Barrel Of A Gun by the music artist Emily Wells:

Dream 2

The next dream was very clear but confusing but I have forgotten most of it now after the quicksand sleep cycle, the dream took place inside a dimly lit apartment room on an upper floor of an apartment building, and I was watching one or more TV shows like Being Human (North American) where the episode was following Josh Levison and Aidan Waite.

My memory is unclear but I think that the dream jumped between me experiencing the episode by being in the episode and/or by being Josh and/or by being Aidan at various points during the dream and in the apartment I was also experiencing something that I can not remember, and so the dream confusingly jumped between both dream worlds/situations and dream characters.

I can not remember most of the details of the episode and of what happened in the apartment but I do know that both took place in dimly lit apartment rooms, and they involved conspiracy, violence, running, hiding, betrayal, et cetera; and I remember running, hiding, fighting, et cetera men who were chasing and attacking us.

At some point Josh and Aidan were alone in a room and Aidan did not trust Josh because he thought that Josh had betrayed him, Josh denied it, but Aidan did not believe him; and so there was a conflict between them, but they still had to worry about the men who were after them but I can not remember what happened and maybe the episode ended there; and whatever happened in my apartment ended at some point as well.

After this confusing part in the dream I remember lifting weights/exercising/jogging and maybe I hurt my foot/ankle/lower leg or I had a medical appointment to go to, and so I left my apartment to another apartment-like room on an upper floor in either the same apartment building or in another building not far away where there was a male and female nurse but the male nurse was leaving when I got there; and the female nurse probably had whitish colored skin but I can not remember the rest of her appearance except that she probably wore a mostly whitish colored nurse uniform/scrubs with several designs with various colors for each design.

She explained the medical procedure that she was about to do to my foot/ankle/lower leg and she showed me a paper/chart with mostly images explaining the medical procedure, I thought that the medical procedure seemed strange, but I only remember part of it.

I had to blow/breath into some bags/containers so that she could collect the air for some unknown reason(s), she examined my foot/ankle/lower leg, she might have taken samples from those areas and/or did something else to those areas (maybe some injections or scratch tests or something like that), and she asked me many questions while she was doing all of this; and we also talked about other things and we seemed to have some similar interests, and I even remember talking with her about that Being Human US episode that I was watching/experiencing earlier in the dream and whatever else I had watched/experienced.

I remember feeling like I wanted to get to know her better like I was interested in her and so I wanted to meet her again, I remember her probably wrapping my foot/ankle/lower leg with something, and then she told me that the next part of the medical procedure was probably going to be a bit painful; and one of the things that it involved was having the nurse bite your ankle for some strange reason(s), and I thought that this was strange and dangerous because the nurse could get infected if they got some body fluids/blood from the patient in their mouths or something like that.

The nurse told me that they made sure to have the area covered with the wrap and/or the patients clothing before biting, in my case it was the wrap and my pants covering the area, and I remember asking some questions about this strange part of the procedure but I can not remember her response(s); and at some point we started the supposedly painful part and I could feel it, but it did not really hurt.

At some point I remember the nurse biting my ankle and she asked me if it was hurting and I said no, and so she continued biting my ankle and doing whatever else she was doing; and she repeated the process at least one more time as she continued to ask me questions, and as we continued to talk about some of our shared interests.

At some point she said that this part of the procedure was over and that they wanted me to come back for the next part tomorrow and/or soon (like they would check the results and/or continue the experiment or procedure or whatever it was), she explained to me what to expect but I can not remember what she said, and I remember letting her that I enjoyed talking with her and that I wanted to get to know her better and that I hoped to see her soon; and she assured me that she would probably be there tomorrow, and so I was happy to hear that.

I remember her telling me something like: “I noticed earlier and now that you were/are walking slowly, not standing up straight, and like you have lifted weights which I think is not very attractive/good; and I recommend that you walk a bit faster, stand up straighter, and that you walk like you did not just finish lifting weights.” and I quickly let her know that I had lifted weights/exercised/jogged before I arrived and so she was correct about that and I did need to practice standing up straighter, and so I told her that I would try to improve that (because I really did want to impress her and for her to like me, and I somewhat agreed with her).

She said okay but that she still recommended that I improve that, I once again said that I would try, and that I looked forward to seeing her next time and I thanked her; and I said goodbye, and I started to leave but I woke up.

The end,
