Too Much Sleep Reviews

Underwhelming in story line and a little too precious in its strategies, Sleep is art house in the extreme.

March 22, 2001
Christopher Null

An overly dry shot at creating something quirky that misfires as often as it hits due to a misconfigured sense of comic timing.

...Maquiling's film derails and can barely sustain interest for it's remaining hour.

Fatiguingly mundane snoozer.

A convenient semi-mystery without a hint of suspense.

There's no way that [Maquiling's] key figure could possibly grow up in such a short time.

Too Much Sleep seems more like a home movie made by your brother-in-law and his frat brothers than a real film.

The material is slender, the characters not sufficiently engaging or eccentric for a feature-length movie.

For all its strengths, Too Much Sleep is ultimately uninvolving.

Feels very much like a student film -- meticulous, mannered and much too precious for its own good.

As a story, Too Much Sleep could inspire a little snooze of its own. But in images - in shots of Jack walking the suburban wasteland, of lawn sprinklers and discarded backyard toys -- it is nearly saved.

Film Journal International

Too Much Sleep traffics in deadpan whimsy, always a risky business.

Not a total snoozer, Sleep's still far from dreamy.

Rich and droll, and yet slight -- a film of modest virtues, content to be small, achieving what it intends.

An esoteric, suburban valentine driven by deadpan humor and a certain dream logic... Too Much Sleep subverts expectations more than any movie I've seen all year.

There's something oddly fresh and naively chipper about writer/director David Maquiling's feature debut.

Full of perfectly realized touches of reality, ones that provoke both laugh-out-loud guffaws and ironic snickers.

A likably offbeat, intelligent American indie.
