Format: DVD.
“A Melancholy Encyclopedia” features a series of dreams inside a nightmare. Or perhaps all the transpires are the free associations of someone undergoing Freudian analysis in a therapist’s office.  Episodes include lovers napping on a bed, under the spell of a dream weaver; drunken friends sleepwalking in a bar, admired by a secret-sharer; genies casting a slumbering man out to sea on a small boat.
