Light Sleeper

Crime, Drama 1h 43m 1992

AroView: Paul Schrader, best known as the writer of TAXI DRIVER delivers a complex, understated character study of an ex-junkie drug-courier (Willem Dafoe) who becomes embroiled in tragedy as he tries to escape the low-life. Susan Sarandon stars as his old flame in this underseen, critically lauded neo-noir from the 90s.

“Schrader seems to have found his way. In Light Sleeper, he attains a new, fluid emotionalism. The movie is a small but absorbing mood piece, a canny insider’s view of the life of a Manhattan drug dealer.” ~Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
