Critic Reviews for To Sleep With Anger
One of the finest films to explore city versus country, old ways versus new, kin versus kin.
Despite uncertain pacing, Burnett's evocation of a thriving cultural milieu that embraces both superstition and mysterious wisdom is almost flawless.
It's a very entertaining, complex film, a comedy of unusual substance that also manages to keep the audience in suspense as to when the comedy might dissolve into some kind of vicious melodrama.
Burnett's acute and sensitive direction is free of hackneyed movie conventions; even something as simple as a hello is said differently from the way you've heard it in any other movie.
Audience Reviews for To Sleep With Anger
Didn't do it for me. I don't blame Glover who has been marvellous in other films. It's hard to blame Burnett either after the wonderful work that he did with Killer of Sheep. So how does this go off the rails?
Very good movie relaying the dynamics of a family & how each personality contributes to the obvious drama
A slow-burn drama exploring the impact that an unexpected, insidious houseguest has on a family. Danny Glover's devilish performance is wonderful, but to single him out is a disservice to the rest of the cast, all of whom are impressive. I enjoy Mary Alice in pretty much anything, even those godawful Matrix sequels. The writing is beautiful, never overplaying its hand and giving the actors some very well-drawn characters to work with. I wasn't exactly blown away by the film, but I really enjoyed it.
