Michel Gondry, the man behind some of the greatest music videos ever made ("Human Behavior," "Everlong," "Protection") and a masterpiece of contemporary cinema, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, has made one of the strangest films I have ever seen. Be Kind Rewind is so strange, so singular, that I can't say how I feel about it. It takes place on no other terrain than that of the dream, and only wants to be as good as a dream can be. As a critic, I surrender: It's up to you to judge this film. (See movie times at www.thestranger.com.)
