The Science of Sleep

I went to The Science of Sleep this week and saw the most peculiar/interesting knitting machine in the movie. It had a keyboard which appeared to control some sort of intarsia knitting. I’ve never seen a knitting machine before. But, this can’t possibly be how they work, right? This must of been just another piece of this crazy, imaginative movie.

I also particularly enjoyed the dream sequences with the giant hands. That’s exactly how I dream. Totally normal, boring dream happening, then suddenly one of my appendages become huge, just like this.

This happens to you too, right? Oh, now you think I’m crazy.

  2. Yeah, the crafts in this movie sort of influnced my over all thumbs up feeling. And the dreamy lead actor/actresses. And the casual polyglot language switching…and the sparing use of music by a music video director…oh, okay, I really liked it, crafts or no crafts!

  4. I truly loved this movie. I find myself scouring knitting websites trying to find out what kind of sweater Charlotte Gainsbourg’s character wears continually. I used to live in one like this too and figure it’s a certain kind. It’s funny when you find something you can’t find on the internet, like stubbing your toe in an unusual way. If anybody knows what you would call this famous sweater, please let me know.
