Shaheema Barodien quote iconUltimately, Sleepwalking feels like a hollow and aimless experience and lays waste to the potential of its strong cast.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconWith its mood of unrelieved misery, slumming stars striving to seem authentically downtrodden, militantly drab look and musical score of plaintively plucked guitar strings, it’s a textbook example of a certain strain of contemporary American filmmaking: the worthy indie drama.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconWith its generic lifeless setting (how many times have we seen this town before?) and low wattage narrative, the movie is a bit of a chore to sit through, and the predictable Pollyanna ending doesn't make things more palatable. Sleepwalking provides character arcs for its two protagonists but neither is as interesting or memorable as the performances warrant.

Tomatometer quote iconDespite some sharp performances, Sleepwalking suffers from a grimness of tone and sluggish pacing.
