Graham Rae on Brion Gysin

A dreamy review by Graham Rae, a chum of mine, of a documentary called ‘FLiCKeR’ about Brion Gysin’s obsession with a dream machine is worth taking a look at for the show-off first paragraph alone:

Dreams. Let’s face it, nobody truly fully knows what they really are. We spend a third of our lives asleep, inscrutable calcium fortress skulls encasing reality-drained mammalian brains in energy-conservation-mode lockdown, being carried along a constant unintelligible river of tattered neon headswimages, safely drowning in cryptic riptides of brief-flare neuronic-and-synaptic mosaics of our daily lives.
