LIGHT SLEEPER

Paul Schrader
USA 1991
103min
V'02

Schraders eerie, meditative Light Sleeper is a film that relies heavily on shadows, both literal and figurative. Starring Willem Dafoe as a reformed drug addict still moonlighting for a high-powered white-collar drug kingpin Susan Sarandon and suddenly confronted with the prospect of unemployment when she opts to back away from the biz. There are cricks and twists aplenty, crooked two-timers and a melancholic love affair nearly renewed with the wonderful Dana Delany but most of the movie is more internal than external, a fact that was lost on most critics at the time.
