Bruce McDonald knows his last film Dreamland is weird and with a strange narrative pace, not always narratively clear but fascinating. If you let your mind go with it and follow its rhythm is a great film , otherwise it could be more difficult. He knows it , he jokes on this and he explains the reason for this choice.

Dreamland: After getting slighted by a legendary jazz trumpet player, sadistic gang boss Hercules puts his number one enforcer, Johnny Deadeyes, on a mission of revenge. His instructions are simple: cut off the trumpet player’s pinkie finger before he plays a wedding reception. Johnny finds himself getting pushed into dark places: a night club called Al Qaeda, an old-world vampire, a junky child bride and a femme fatale.
