An interesting film for those not obsessed with tidy plots
(4 out of 5 stars)
""I Can't Sleep" is an odd film--with a plot about a number of overlapping stories, about people who live on the margins of Parisian society. The story is not so much held together by a continuous or integrated methodology, but rather between the tension of the external urban images of a Paris that belie the subversive, sometimes pathological actions of its main characters, whose existences we are privy to through the action of the film and because of the properties of narrative film itself. The film has the easy-going, wan attitude of an early Jim Jarmusch movie combined with a quasi-documentary sloppy styled cinematography. Its main purpose, it seems, is to show us how our outward and anonymous appearances, particularly for those who live in large urban areas, mask an abundance of attitudes, objectives, obsessions, etc., and that who we are is not what we seem."
Strange and exciting
