Very interesting plot, not just the same old, same old. It is unfortunate that this film is not more readily available. The story line is different from any other film I have seen.

I would not consider this a boring film by any stretch of the imagination. The Sleeping City is a great example of a classic film noir. I would not have been able to view this film if it wasn't for a store I found online that sells a DVD copy of it, if you look around you should be able to find it. Hope more people can enjoy this great work too!
