It's difficult to fault the film's artistry and its originality.

[The] movie trades in ambiguity and uncomfortable awkwardness, the often hypnotising trance it emits is a fascinating sight to witness.

Film Comment Magazine

Even if the film's final chapter seems far too on point, if not glib, the filmmaker continues to mine complicated psychological terrain with a clear-eyed stringency.

It's so sterile and clinical and emotionless that making a film about the emotionlessness of sex has become more of a cliche than just good ole Cinemax softcore porn.

Film Comment Magazine

She spends much of the movie baring her fascinatingly underdeveloped body; her vagina is her temple. There's no graphic sex, but its intimations are anything but sexy.

Wallows in the mud as a sicko exploitation pic.

Juggling moments of pitch black humour and disturbingly tense scenes of abuse, Sleeping Beauty has a queasy, mismatched tone that underscores an uneven, elliptical movie.

Comically pretentious and unreasonably slow...

Sleeping Beauty is an atmospheric gem which intrigues and delivers in almost every scene

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The film's stifled sexual politics seem both non-feminist and critical of a 21st-century pornographic world, where all of us are stuck in our cubicles of detached, narcissistic desire.

[An] arty exploitation pic passed off as a feminist parable...

I could see it inspiring interesting discussions afterward, but there is the matter of having to sit through it first.

This is a strange film that gets into issues of the meaning of sex, of male fantasy, even of feminism.

Stan Hall

Though it seems appropriate to make "Sleeping Beauty" as empty, enervating and dull as its main character, it only serves to underscore the lack of entertainment or insight.

A fascinating, erotically charged mystery.

The film deals with the topic of sexual taboos in a transgressive manner that bends your brain. The whole enterprise may even be fraudulent.

Leigh, impressively for a first-time filmmaker, has a distinct and confident approach.

It's a story told in quiet rooms and hushed voices - except for one devastating scream near the end - and it's ultimately a horror story, though one completely free of blood and gore.

Leigh strikes an observational, artful tone that builds to an emotional climax as fittingly yet frustratingly enigmatic as anything that's come before.
