On the surface it may appear like the intense thrilled “10 Cloverfield Lane” and the comedy “Hello, My Name is Doris” have little in common.  I believe nothing is further from the truth.  Here are two films which very much trade on the questions of what is reality and what is fantasy.  They are both concerned with how one becomes the other and whether this transition is good or bad.

It is, in fact rather amazing just how concerned both movies are with the exact same sort of questions even if they go about exploring them in different fashion or via a different story.  But, as always, rather than my writing about it here, why not just click play and have me speak my thoughts directly into your ears.  I promise, my words are more clear than the Once-ler’s.
