    Default I have no idea where to ask this, but...

    Does anybody know what movie Steve Soderberg is talking about in the movie Waking Life? He mentions Billy Wilder, and a name that sounds like "Louie Mow," late 60's/early 70's, and a quote that the movie is kind'a like a dream within a dream. I'm curious! I'll try watching the movie with the commentary, and I'll see if I can find out. Thanks.

    Haven't seen it.
    As I lay there gazing up at the billions of stars above my head in complete awe of creations beauty and vastness the most pressing question on my mind about the meaning of it all was, "Where in the hell is my roof?"

    I found the quote. It goes like this:
    "Allegedly, the story goes like this: Billy Wilder runs into Louis Malle - this is in the late '50s or early '60s - and Louis Malle's just made his most expensive film, which cost $2.5 million. And, Billy Wilder asks him what the film is about, and Louis Malle says, 'Well, it's sort of a dream within a dream,' and Billy Wilder says, 'You just lost $2.5 million!'"
    - Steve Soderberg, Waking Life
