Articles like "Nocturnal Emissions" (Arts & Culture, Oct. 4) by Wayne Melton are an exact example of the mundane life that Michel Gondry's character Stéphane is railing against. To wrap this film up into a tiny simplistic box of complexity, to say: 'Oh well, it was confusing, so it is bad'
is neither a valid nor solid argument.
The confusing situations that we find ourselves in on a daily basis, life in general that is what Stéphane is working out in his elaborate dreams. Society's need to make everything that is different or difficult to understand bad does not pass as a satisfactory synopsis in my book. If at first you don't comprehend please try, try again.Holli Flowers
