Critic's Pick

'Paperhouse'

June 02, 1996|Michael Wilmington

Daydreams, nightmares and the world of art and imagination are the subjects of Bernard Rose's 1989 British film. In "Paperhouse's" dream world, the light is pitiless, full of harsh surfaces--a world ready to crack open over a hellish, fiery core. Much of the movie is set in the mind of a sick, bedridden little girl (Charlotte Burke), creating her own territory on paper and in the inner chambers of her mind. With Elliot Spiers, pictured (Bravo Monday at 8 p.m. and Tuesday at 9 a.m.)
