Sleepwalk With Me (2012)

Sleepwalk With Me (2012)
Directed by: Mike Birbiglia
Country: USA

Review: One-man-show Mike Bribiglia wrote, directed and acted in “Sleepwalk With Me”, a movie based on his own experiences. A weird comedy about the pressure of getting married and how to be a successful comedian using true life stories. Beyond that, a lot of sleepwalk and some setbacks complete the panorama, in a plot that never came to a real shakeup. For many times I could feel the frustration shown by Matthew, when his jokes were completely misunderstood or simply were not funny. I felt frustrated because this movie just needed a push or a click to make the emotions come out, and that never happened. The weirdness fits well here, but in the end there wasn't much more for us to retain. It opted for an honest modesty instead of a deceptive grandeur, which in this case had its own risks, leading to a limited amusement.
