A narcotized neo-noir that unfolds with the diverting purposelessness of a forgettable dream, Meredith Danluck's State Like Sleep doesn't really go anywhere.

This consistently surprising film slinks along with melancholic dreaminess, matching the fugue state that plagues its grief-stricken protagonist.

Overall, State Like Sleep is a satisfying movie about grief and an unsatisfying mystery

May 9, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Danluck has great style as a filmmaker that harkens back to the best noir thrillers of yesteryear; she just needs to write a script with the substance to match.

Led by Katherine Waterston and Michael Shannon's performances, writer-director Meredith Danluck takes a fascinating approach to grieving by way of State Like Sleep.
