Too Much Sleep Reviews

April 10, 2001
The film moves from mere dreamlessness to its own weird magic.
March 23, 2001
As a story, Too Much Sleep could inspire a little snooze of its own. But in images - in shots of Jack walking the suburban wasteland, of lawn sprinklers and discarded backyard toys -- it is nearly saved.
March 23, 2001
For all his baggy-pants vulgarity, Eddie gives Jack the energy he needs to find his own way. And Jack finding Jack is the nut of the tale.
March 23, 2001
A modest, non-pushy little movie, one that resists hitting you over the head to get laughs.

March 23, 2001
Though far less polished (and pricey) than the average studio movie, an independent film such as Too Much Sleep easily makes up in pith and becoming modesty what it lacks in flash.

A wickedly smart indie film.
March 23, 2001
Rich and droll, and yet slight -- a film of modest virtues, content to be small, achieving what it intends.

A sleeper with promise.
March 22, 2001
Suburban familiarity and contempt notwithstanding, the movie's a gas.

March 22, 2001
Amiable, occasionally funny, and never especially involving.
March 22, 2001
For a modest film, however, Too Much Sleep is a modest surprise.
March 22, 2001
Underwhelming in story line and a little too precious in its strategies, Sleep is art house in the extreme.
March 22, 2001
Like one of its hero's daydreams, the film evaporates on contact and leaves a serene glow.

March 22, 2001
On the screen, Too Much Sleep is wonderfully and deceivingly unpretentious, with one good performance after another.
March 22, 2001
Too Much Sleep scores by keeping its tone light and its characters fresh and eccentrically innocent, even when they get a little vicious.
March 22, 2001
A likably offbeat, intelligent American indie.
March 22, 2001
An unusually clear, compassionate, and grownup satire.
March 21, 2001
Plays like a refreshing return to that point in the mid-1990s before independent film had been co-opted by corporate subsidiaries.
March 21, 2001
Just when I was dreading seeing another indie movie, along comes this delightful, low-budget comedy.
March 21, 2001
This cleverly drawn setting of very ordinary life as a backdrop for sinister doings is part of the fun.
March 6, 2001
So good it made me wish I had kept that workhorse phrase 'remarkably assured debut feature' just for it.
February 21, 2001
The material is slender, the characters not sufficiently engaging or eccentric for a feature-length movie.
February 21, 2001
Maquiling creates an unusual and intriguing tone somewhere between sharp, deadpan comedy and a soft, dreamy surrealism.
