It happened by mere chance that I came across the trailer for IMPERIAL DREAMS as I browsed for content on YouTube to consume. As I watched and got a sense of the film I wished there was more movies like this. Having to wait a while as the film was yet released on Netflix I found other ways to bide my time. When I was finally able to watch the film I found its point of view and story to be very refreshing almost proud to see a film take the direction it did. There were some areas I felt the film was lacking in original drama, but overall I thought the film was tight and I would definitely recommend this film to a friend. So for IMPERIAL DREAMS I give it 4 stars.
