Favorite Scenes - Spellbound (1945)

"Oh I'll be insane - about you"

Spellbound is a mysterious psycho-thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Gregory Peck's character is suffering from amnesia and may have possibly committed murder. In this scene, we see Peck recount a strange baffling dream to his peers that may have some relation to events before his memory loss. The meaning of this dream plays a huge part of the plot and is explained later on in the film. Accompanied by a smooth and eerie score that definitely set the mood - I found this dream sequence genius, surreal and uses symbolism well. It was designed by Salvador Dali and is definitely one of the most memorable visual treats in cinema.
