Imperial Dreams

imperial dreams

Nine times out of ten, when a movie depicts a writer, his writing (or what we hear of it) turns out to be terrible.  If the writer’s talent is a major plot point, this results in cognitive dissonance; the movie keeps telling us the writer is good, while at the same time showing us that he’s lousy.  It’s even worse when the writing doubles as voice-over narration – as it does in Imperial Dreams.  Apart from this rather glaring flaw, this is an engaging enough story of struggle and redemption – though it doesn’t really have much of an ending.
