"Light Sleeper" is a great and very effective yarn that follows JohnLeTour (Willem Dafoe), a drug trafficker/former addict who seemsmiserable and lonely while bringing drugs to users in the Big Apple.LeTour's life is put to the test when he finds out from Robert (DavidClennon), that their boss, Ann (Susan Sarandon), is finally switchingto cosmetics instead of drugs and an old flame, Marianne Joseph (DanaDelany), comes to town to visit her ailing mother. The movie moves at asteady pace and doesn't get ugly until the fierce and bloody shootoutnear the end of the movie. I must note that I'm a big fan of Dafoe andthe strong (and moving) performance that he gives here is why I admirehim a lot.

The film's photography, shot by Ed Lachman ("The Limey", "The VirginSuicides"), is nothing short of brilliant and beautiful. In the earlymoments of the film, there are several small piles of garbages thatnearly cover up the sidewalks and the bottom of the street lights.Dafoe, who also narrates the movie, mentions that there's a strike.Also, the musical score that's composed and performed by Michael Been,is good to listen to and it stayed with me during the whole film.

Paul Schrader (who directed the movie and wrote the screenplay) knowsvery well how to handle the film here with a simple and wise approach.Most of his earlier (and recent) work, dating back (and now) to thescreenplay(s) that he wrote for Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" and"Bringing Out The Dead" and one of his own films - "American Giglo"make great examples of anyone who works at night and feels agitated."Light Sleeper" itself has to be one of Schrader's best films for sure.

Like "Prince Of The City", this is another great drug movie, withthe greatest set ever built for a movie, New York City. Very few people saw"Prince", and I'll wager fewer saw this one. It has a cast of New York stageactors, who make the usual run of Hollywood anorexic barbie dolls, andSunset Strip would be tough guys, look exactly like what they are, refugeesfrom some "hysterical" wise cracking sit-com. I have to mention each one ofthese artists because they're so incredibly good. Willem Dafoe, SusanSarandon, Dana Delany (what a performance), David Clennon, Mary Beth Hurt,Jane Adams(the looney sister from "Happiness"), David Spade, and last, butcertainly not least Victor Garber. Paul Schrader wrote and directed, and if he never does anotherproduction, his mother can know that she gave birth to a major cinematicartist. The story can impress people as very hokey. Dafoe is a cokepusher. But he's very sensitive and loving, and is looking for a "betterlife". He's so guilt ridden as a pusher, he can hardly sleep. Oh, give me abreak. But wait. With Dafoe I bought it completely. I was even rooting for him to get back with his former junkie lover DanaDelany. Delany and Susan Sarandon give major performances, Sarandon as amajor supplier also looking to go straight as a cosmetic maven. This is amajor manual on acting....look, learn, and enjoy.

Paul Schrader's finest film to date, and firmly lodged in my top 10, this isa surprisingly overlooked and underrated gem. Often touted as a "modernnoir" movie, I really don't consider it in that genre atall.

The heart of the film is a reworking of the themes embodied in Schrader'searlier film "American Gigolo", where a man is forced to confront the factthat the life he is leading is fundamentally unsatisfying, reassess what hewants to do, find out who his real friends are and ultimately get redeemedthrough love.

Willem Dafoe's character Le Tour's journey is a slow but inevitable one, ashis drug-dealing days are numbered due to his boss Susan Sarandon (alsosplendid) "going straight". Most of the scenes take place at night (hencethe noir tag), but this is partly a consequence of the drug-dealing aspectand partly to capture the unreal mood of a man who doesn't know where hefits in to "normal" life. The device whereby Le Tour spends many hourswriting his thoughts in an exercise book, throwing it away when he fills it,then starting another one, is so strong and startling that I put aside myusual dislike of narration. The soundtrack is also excellent and fits andexpands the mood very well.

The best scene is probably the one in the hospital cafeteria, where Le Tourhas a conversation with his ex-girlfriend that he hasn't seen for a longtime - immaculately acted, tremendously understated with so many thingsgoing unsaid... The final scene, although Schrader nicked it from a Frenchfilm, and used it before in "Gigolo", is still very powerful, based on theidea that whether a man is in prison or not is completely unrelated towhether he is free.
