Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams:
Two and a half stars out of five
It’s unpredictable, fiery and completely random. Creativity can reduce the bravest, most decorated left-brained soldier into a puddle of nervous mush. For singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks, this seems to be a natural state — a lacy palace of romantic thoughts and swirling melodies that complements her actual abode, a sprawling mansion with a mega-rotunda in suburban Los Angeles. The house and Nicks’s ephemeral creative muse are essentially the two stars of In Your Dreams, a new documentary from multi-hyphenate producer Dave Stewart. Part video diary of the production process, and part artist portrait, In Your Dreams chronicles the conception, gestation and eventual birth of Nicks’s latest studio offering, which shares the same title as the movie. It conjures a feeling somewhere between nutty cat-collector and esteemed oddball artist, and we hear Nicks tell us about her life and her creative work with an unmistakable hint of Norma Desmond lurking in the folds of her black cloaks. Special features unavailable.
