Very nice
13 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had heard of this movie from a band web page. I downloaded the trailer and immediately bought the DVD. The trailer doesn't help the viewer figure out what kind of genre picture Sleeping Dogs Lie might be. The cinematography sets the mood of this roller coaster ride from the very first moment. It reminds me of a David Lynch ride, but with out the trippy visuals.

As for acting...well lets just say, some musicians can act. We truly see Hannon (Wilks) is being effected by certain events. Mr. Asner's sheriff actually has depth, as seen through his actions with other characters. Who was that deputy.....ha ha. Maynard brought an oddball but not goofy Deputy to the screen.

Overall, it was one of those I had to watch twice to catch things I might have missed the first time.

I did hate the fact that the BEHIND THE SCENES was longer than the actual production.
