Not great in a traditional sense, but has good energy, content and creativity
14 February 2015 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

I am grateful for IMDb listing a plot summary because I am not sure without those words that I would have had any idea what is going on in this short film. That said, I also slightly wish that I had not read the plot summary, because in a way I would have preferred just to take away from this whatever I wanted. So the two women who the plot describes as sisters, seem to exist in the same places, and although they appear often to be there at the same time, there is the suggestion that the more straight-laced one is following the steps of the other.

In terms of traditional narrative, I do not think anyone can argue that the film is all over the place, and really makes very little in the way of sense; I have read many comments on this film where people are shouted down for saying such things, but personally I think it is possible to feel this and yet still enjoy it for it does outside of this. Within the very loose "plot" we have a film that looks and moves beautifully; it has a very Lynchian Los Angeles, filled with odd characters which begin on the streets and ends on the high art society parties of excess and creativity. I took these changes to be a map of the corruption and fall of the original character, but I guess it could be taken many ways. The delivery of this journey is through odd pop- art aesthetics and also modern dance; I will not say I an a fan of either, but at the same it is hard not to say that they worked for what they did.

Sleepover LA is not a film I would recommend to anyone, because it is not traditionally "good" in the way that it would easily win over casual viewers. However, that said, it is an experience and there is a lot of creativity and comment in there – albeit all of it open to reading in many ways.
