1960's or 1970's movie about a man that changes reality with his dreams and then sees a psychiatrist that steals his ability and creates a computer that can do the same thing. In the end I seem to recall a worm hole or something open where the computer and the man battled it out, but it was a movie I watched in school and was not paying that much attention. the man took the train to work and recalled things were different the previous day early in the movie, which started the premise.

I remember the" lathe of heaven" very well. I saw this PBS movie when i was still in school. Really liked it too.
If they could do overdrawn at the memory bank, I believe this one could be done as well.

I remember this--it was a TV movie called The Lathe of Heaven. It was released on PBS in 1980. Bruce Davison played George Orr, the guy who changed reality with his dreams, and Kevin Conway played Dr. William Haber, the psychiatrist who wanted to use George's power to change the world for the better. Oh, and it also featured aliens who looked like space turtles.
