Thriller with an unreliable narrator. Perfectly satisfying ending imo
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The protagonist of the film is a young woman named Sara Foster who has trouble with sleepwalking after the suicide of her husband. After one walk takes her miles from her house she decides to go to a sleep clinic for a study, and finds that from then on, every time she falls asleep and wakes up, theres a little something different about the world.

Through out the movie, its obvious that Sara is suffering from more than just sleepwalking. Many scenes focus on the idea that she is also experiencing hallucinations, potential weight loss, and memory loss. A lot of things contradict each other and even her own memories change. It is at this point we realize that Sara is an unreliable narrator through this story and have to look for little truths in what might be reality.

A lot of people seemed confused about the ending of this movie; felt it wasn't clear, but after watching movies like Memento, Coherence, Primer, and Mine Games, I didn't feel so. I think the point of these movies is to be a little curious about what is reality and to question the things presented to you and from who they're presented by. In the end you can certainly choose what you want to believe, but I think Sleepwalker makes it clear in the end what is really going on!

Overall, definitely give it a try!
