Mel V (jp) wrote: Halfway through the film, and I was already super disappointed by it. It's really quite boring, and the acting is pretty shaky all round. After debating on whether or not I was going to finish it at all, I decided on not once it had gotten so boring that my eyes crossed. And, I'm not sure, but there might have been some drool. And, I know it was set in the 40?s and it was a thing, but god, so many cigarettes! It's nauseating. If I took a shot for every cigarette lit in the first 55 minutes of this film, I'd get alcohol poisoning and die. Twice. I give it 1/10, and that's purely for the eye candy. The film itself gets a big, fat zero.
Nick A (ca) wrote: When what some may interpret as a "hopeful" outlook finally comes in Bill Maher's rather dire melodrama, it does so in the derivative, borderline discourteous form of this terribly underwhelming quote: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life." To make the scene, which concludes the film, a measure more incongruous, the aforementioned line is said by a 12-year-old girl to her mother, who had previously abandoned her daughter for a month-long blacktop jaunt. What's a shame about "Sleepwalking" is that, with a little doctoring of the script, and a fair alteration of some of the characters (Dennis Hopper's role as an abusive father nearly suffocated me with its stale odor), it could have made for a riveting film, if exclusively for its performances -- everyone involved is above-average, though the echo of their acts rings with a grueling pitch, the culprit of which is obnoxious, sour writing. The DVD, however, is more earnest, liable to captivate buyers and renters more than the move itself. The two main characters are Tara (AnnaSophia Robb, of "Bridge to Terabithia"), a snarling pre-teen, and James Reedy (Nick Stahl), her docile, hapless, tardy uncle. But it's difficult to decipher who the movie's about -- Tara, James, or Tara's mother (played by Charlize Theron, who also produced the project), who, after being evicted and moving into her brother James' ramshackle apartment with her daughter, leaves both the two with whom she'd been living and the film until the scratch finale. Woody Harrelson, as a friend and former co-worker of James named Randall, does his best to lift the tale's piteous mood with some humor, but is unable because of the supposed comedic content of screenwriter Zac Stanford's script -- Randall's a fortysomething doofus who passes his time by hounding his female colleague about her "uncanny fanny" and playing beer-drinking games with equally foolish adults, which may have been funnier if it were the first, even tenth time I'd seen this type of character. But it's more likely the hundredth. The movie itself is bogged down by many poor traits, yet it seems that each of them could have at least been modest with a more focused story (and, of course, an equipped inker to pen it) and a modicum of creativity. But, like many of its characters (particularly Hopper's and Theron's, the second being a mimicry of Maggie Gyllenhaal's Sherry in 2006's "SherryBaby"), this picture is a discombobulated mess of other movies' conceptions -- there's even a pool scene that gives off a "Lolita" vibe, but in a less artistic way. And the lethargic rate at which "Sleepwalking" drags is the result of this, the filmmakers' lack of ideas -- much of the movie plays like stationary filler rather than significant story progression -- an evident, quite saddening attribute. Still, maybe "Sleepwalking"'s most prominent gaffe, the dismal substance in its final shape is textured like leather, terribly missing the soft layering I assume it had aimed for (why would a movie try for a rough, plastic consistency over an ultimately embracing one, even if the latter were initially itchy?). If ever it manages its course toward emotional legitimacy, it, immediately and almost purposely, steers off in a different direction before getting there, prohibiting its observers to latch onto any of the movie's troubled characters for an extended amount of time, small or large. Even the players we wish we could care for are hard to see with tolerance -- instead of coming across as the victim of parental negligence, Tara is perceived as a nasty-hearted brat (to the discredit of the screenplay, not Robb's resourceful performance); and James' culminating outburst (think "There Will be Blood") near the movie's end virtually disqualifies his prior rank as the most applicable part in "Sleepwalking". On a positive note, "Sleepwalking" features an effective soundtrack and first-time director Maher, who had previously worked with writer Zac Stanford in '05's "The Chumscrubber" as the visual effects designer, achieves a few beautiful road shots and certainly shows promise as a pupil of imagery -- cinematographer Juan Ruiz Ancha ("Focus", "September Dawn") does a great job capturing the subzero temperatures of Canada, where the movie was filmed -- but, regrettably, this show chooses content as its precedence, allowing minimal time spent on attractive scenery. To call Maher's rookie endeavor an utter failure would be unmerited, though it's definitely no success; it's closer to a disappointment, a movie I'd recommend only to those more interested in acting than anything else.

Joseph S (ca) wrote: The storytelling is masterfully done, using a unique style of framing and flash-backs that connect the lives of our main players in deeply emotional ways. That's the great thing about the film: it manages to tell the story of one person in one time by telling the story of a completely different person in a different time. As a result, the film is able to leave a deep impression on the viewer as he/she is able to internalize and relate the events to his/her own life. The film can get away without being completely historically accurate, since it is being told through the eyes of an old lady survivor, who may be embellishing or forgetting certain facts.

Sean D (ru) wrote: This one is one the best films of all time. The film discusses autism. A subject till this very day, that sadly is still not very well known about especially with the time of autistic that the Rain Man is. The most notable thing about this film is that Dustin Hoffman completely nails the role perfectly down to a 'T'. In the history of film, this is one the few situations that the acting was so perfect. Tom Cruise also plays his selfish younger brother personally, having his own coming-of-age adult style storyline as he tries to cope with the realization that he had a brother, older one, who's autistic and a total savant at math. The film goes through an entire journey of trying to understand and build his relationship with his brother in a week and going from using him as a tool for money, to being someone he genuinely love and wants to take care of. The end of the film is a custody battle. The film has a sort of interesting theme song to it. This is one of the best films of all time, it may not be the greatest portrayal and understanding of autism, but given the limited amount of tools at the time, it's easily one of the best. It still stands out today.
