Abstract:

Bryan Barber's film Idlewild features a dream of one of the main characters. Leon Balter's recent work on what he terms nested ideation, dreams or works of art within works of art, provides an opportunity to analyze this aspect of the film. This article discusses the dream in terms of disavowed and antithetical reality in the life of the protagonist concerning his mother's death when he was four.
