When the story falters, the mood takes over, making the audience's experience a dreamlike state of sleep itself.
Despite the film's wispiness... there is always something compelling about Waterston, who is usually the best part of any film she's in.
About as thrilling as a power failure in Antarctica.
Does a fine job of recreating the dream-like fog of grief. But it doesn't go much further, and "somnolence" isn't an ideal quality around which to build an entire film.
While the character's loss of all her life's reference points may be what the film's odd title is meant to suggest, many viewers will find the moniker a better description of their experience than the protagonist's.
Dunluck over-complicates this muted slice-of-life, but a good cast mostly holds it together.
State Like Sleep is certainly a little more interesting than the cookie-cutter thriller that the ads suggest, but it is more likely to put most viewers into a state like sleep themselves.
A wannabe noir film that turns out to be a listless dreamlike mystery thriller.
Katherine (Katherine Waterston) has woven a rich, complicated story to make up for her husband's seemingly random act of self-destruction. She's blocked the emotional fallout of her husband's death. Now, she's determined to face it.
As the title suggests, this so-called thriller could be trying to suggest a dreamlike or sleepwalking state, but instead it tells a terminally disjointed, boring story in a way that can induce sleep.
'State Like Sleep' candidly explores dark themes of suicide, trauma, and grief with a tender gaze.
As a mystery the movie doesn't work as hard to succeed as it does at looking the part.
