  • Summary: Sleepless Nights Stories originated from readings of the One Thousand and One Nights. But unlike the Arabian tales, these stories are all from real life, though at times they too wander into somewhere else, beyond the everyday routine reality. (Jonas Mekas Films)

    A freeform, New York-based variation on the Arabian Nights tales by Jonas Mekas is both a pan-narrative and a disarming portrait of its sweetly curious maker.

    The movie indulges a few too many whims, but it's never less than alive.

    Mr. Mekas makes little attempt to smooth out his transitions between takes or scenes, which only reinforces the intensely personal, even handmade nature of the work.

    More often, Mekas's focus on "names" comes off as a cloistered insensitivity to the wider world.
