Dreams

Dreams (1990) is an anthology film directed by Akira Kurosawa and is made up of 8 sequences based on dreams the director had at different points in his life. Some clips are available online, and here is the blizzard scene, one of the 3 nightmares:

The other dreams have more color, and the use of color is one of the most striking aspects of this film.
