About State Like Sleep

Official Description: One year after the untimely death of her husband, a young woman receives a phone call that pulls her back to Brussels and the life there that she’s tried to forget. She is forced to finally confront her grief but is swept up in unraveling the mysteries surrounding her husband’s last days alive.

The trailer for State Like Sleep is modern noir at its best, presenting the buildup and mystery just right without revealing a single thing about where it all goes. One of the best actors of this generation, Michael Shannon (Shape of Water, Man of Steel), stars alongside Waterston and instantly gives off a vibe of dangerous untrustworthiness. But is that only a ruse? Director Meredith Danluck is making her feature film debut after several acclaimed short films and documentaries like The Ride (2010).

State Like Sleep looks like it’ll be an intriguing, twisting story with plenty of mind-fu*kery going on. Variety called it “unsettling” which only makes me want to watch it even more. While it’s called a noir film, it reminds me of the 90s era of suspense-thrillers like Basic Instinct or Primal Fear.
