I doubt Sara Driver's SLEEPWALK needs to go begging for favorable reviews, and I don't imagine many people who have seen, or who may be tempted to see, the film would bother looking up what the peanut gallery here at IMDb makes of it, but since there is currently only a single review here, and a negative one, I thought I should point out that SLEEPWALK is a beautiful, atmospheric film, in the rich minority tradition of the low-budget American cinema of uncanny mystery and poetry, imaginatively directed, gorgeously photographed, witty and clever, with immaculate performances by Suzanne Fletcher and the great Ann Magnuson. The big mystery surrounding the heroine's translation assignment never fully becomes clear, which I can imagine would be frustrating for some, but the film is not meant to work on a straight plot level, and viewers have to be willing to let go and just go with it, in a pure visual poetry way.
