    Münch's characters are given to a certain rapt, unwieldy thoughtfulness, and accordingly, his films cultivate a mood of almost trancelike introspection.
  2. Months after seeing this, I still feel I know most of these people as if they were old friends.
  3. 88
    Munch's screenplay is tenderly observant of his characters. He watches them as they float within the seas of their personalities. His scenes are short and often unexpected. The story unfolds in sidelong glances.
  4. 75
    Stunning performances help make The Sleepy Time Gal a thoughtful, moving piece that faces difficult issues with honesty and beauty.
  5. Playing a role of almost Bergmanesque intensity -- a tough, lonely woman dying of cancer as she examines her past -- Bisset is both convincing and radiant.
  6. 70
    Excellent performances from Jacqueline Bisset and Martha Plimpton grace this deeply touching melodrama.
  7. 50
    Too-convenient coincidences hurt the movie's credibility. A melodramatic script best left to cable TV doesn't help, either.
