I thought to put together a list of all movies about or related to Lucid Dreams. These are in no particular order but are divided to fiction and documentaries. I will continuously add to this list as I find or learn about more movies and will add some descriptions or comments as I watch more of these.
I wanted to add links to where these are available to view online but that keeps changing and it depends where you are in the world. For now, I am linking to IMDB.
Here we go…
- Waking Life – Perhaps one of the most know lucid dreaming movies, and a hybrid of filmed animation and partially documentary style film.
- Inception – One of my favorite movies and one whose images are used in nearly every lucid dreaming article these days.
- Vanilla Sky (which is an american remake of Abre los ojos (Open your eyes))
- Lucid Dream – A Korean film on netflix
- Falling Water – TV Show
- Paprika – A spectacular Japanese animated film
- The Science of Sleep
- The Matrix – Where do I even start about this one? I might have to write whole separate post in this case.
- Nightmare on Elm Street
- The Cell
- The Good Night
- Alice in Wonderland
- When a Man Falls (in the Forest)
Movies Experientially about Lucid Dreams:

Did I miss any lucid dreaming movies? Let me know.
There are also a ton of short films, what do you think, should I include those?
