Critic Reviews for Dream for an Insomniac

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (6)

  • The chemistry between Skye and Astin is based entirely on grueling, non-stop referential dialogue, as if neither of them has forgotten a word of Kierkegaard, Tennyson, or Cobain.

    February 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Dream for an Insomniac is really a self-conscious modern sitcom that with its San Francisco setting suggests a pale shadow of Armistead Maupin's Tales From the City.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • It's talky, clumsy and a bit trivial, but the talk is rarely dull, and there's an integrity about its clumsiness: It's harder to be smooth when you have things you really want to say.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Filmed in a mixture of black and white and colour, this has enough good lines to keep you smiling and the young cast members deliver attractive performances.

    January 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A slight, sleekly polished debut feature propelled by a kinder, gentler Swingers vibe.

    Contrived poop. If these people really exist I hope we never meet. Let's be weird and free-spirited for the sake of being weird and free-spirited. Insert fart noise here...
