Movie Info

Director Alan Berliner has a problem: He can't sleep. For much of his life, Berliner has been plagued by insomnia. It's left an indelible impact on both his career as a filmmaker and his personal relationships. In this documentary, Berliner examines his condition and his long, futile search for a good night's sleep. He talks with his family and a panoply of doctors and uses a meticulous assemblage of vintage film clips to illustrate his own disjointed mental state come bedtime.

Audience Reviews for Wide Awake

  • Nov 24, 2011
    A entretaining and terrific experimental documentary about the battle of the filmmaker Alan Berliner against the insomnia, how this problem influence in his life, in his family and his job. Wide Awake, present with good humor the subject in the main character, make the audience identify oneself with Berliner, and could help some views that suffer with this same disturbance. A modern chronicle about a contemporaneous enemy. Fresh.
