Blessed Are the Dreams of Men contains languid images of people in half-asleep states on a train, underscored by the literally terrifying music of Andy Moor. It has a palpable sense of inexorable doom. The film's setting is a train, a favoured site for Cohen for both its people-watching possibilities and its symbolic value as a decaying industrial beast. As in many of Cohen's shorter works, he quite consciously confounds the generic idea of a music video. (Noah Cowan)
