Audience Reviews for Sleep, My Love

  • Dec 20, 2013
    Although this Gaslight knockoff features a solid cast, the plot and direction (artistically sound, yet lacking storytelling fundamentals) leaves much to be desired. Ameche "tells" (per direction I'm sure) the first minute he is onscreen. Yech. But everyone does okay insofar as delivering-a-story-you-already-know-how-it-goes goes. The Chinese wedding sequence (featuring Asians laughing, kissing, and dancing - not sinister, not the racist Hollywood I grew up watching at all) really the only surprise in this "mystery".

    This movie is a lot like films like Gaslight, which were better. There is a pretty good cast, and it starts out a pretty good mystery. Then it gets to be predictable, and it's not as good as it could be.

    Early Sirk semi Gaslight remake has effective use of shadows and a good cast but tips it's hand far too early. In addition it has some seemingly interesting subsidiary characters, Rita Johnson is especially fun cast against type as a daffy chatterbox, that are trotted out just long enough to catch your attention and then they disappear. Unfortunate since the "mystery" is revealed so early and is obvious even before that the film could have used some extra attractions.
