  • Dreamlike TV noir from the Zone..

    One of the Zone's best, a sterling example of what this series was all about. "Perchance to Dream" plays like a little noir fable for television, pushed just over the edge of dreaming into the realm of nightmare and the supernatural. The minimalist sets are wonderfully claustrophobic, and that cat-eyed stripper Maya is one sexy tour guide to hell, laughing like a demon as she urges you to JUMP! Probably this episode has a special resonance for me because I used to work in Studio City, and the tricky switchback drive back to L.A. over Laurel Canyon every night was just as hairy as Richard Conte's character describes.
