  1. Slow Immersion's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Tsai's best. Second half is one of the finest examples of contemplative cinema I've seen.

  2. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Will be a letdown for those into Tsai’s playful/experimental side, as this strips down to the barebones of Tsai’s obsession with alienation. In silence the desperation to escape loneliness becomes beyond amplified. A beautiful “love story” between broken people in the streets of Kuala Lumpur.

  4. O...'s rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    El filme más tranquilo, calmado y lírico de Tsai Ming-liang. Otra vez el amor y el problema de nuestras relaciones con los otros. En la mitad de la niebla, oscura y asfixiante, flota reposadamente la vida, el agua, los ojos cerrados y el árbol y la mariposa silenciosa. Sentir con la imaginacion. Imaginar con el sentir.

  5. Naoya Kugimiya's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

  6. Araxi Barounian's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    S'il y a bien un film qui mérite 5 étoiles, c'est celui-ci!

  7. grotesc's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

  8. Diogo CF's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

  9. Ulises's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    The most pure of Ming Liang films. Relatively close to Weerasethakul

  10. Matthew Martens's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Tsai's hallucino-narcotic dream-trudge made for an accidentally ideal follow-up to The Quiet Earth. While that film's post-apocalyptic triangle was underwritten yet occasionally overwrought, this one's undergoes a mostly unspoken, frequently unconscious negotiation of the end of the world, in this case always already here, but subject to internal renewals and reversals.

  11. ermete polpette's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

  12. dalena's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    so much grace spewing into me

  13. Matt Reddick's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    agreeing with most other reviews... add this to the "tourist-porn" list, movies with cityscapes that linger in my memory and make me want to visit them and wander around (Le Pont du Nord, In the White City etc)

  14. Andrew Miller's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    I followed Tsai's films closely, but this is the point where I began to lose interest.

  15. Jude Marcella's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    hope to find this again bc i didnt have time to watch it properly, w o w though

  16. Laura Hitchman's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

  17. Duncan Gray's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Not my favorite Tsai, but a beautiful articulation of how much you can do with such simple elements: a setting (a decaying city that would make a Hollywood art director jealous), three characters (wordless expressions of loneliness), and a central symbol you return to over and over. A film about connections in our perpetual apocalypse, meandering at times but coming together—much like its characters.

  18. Caitlin's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Filed under "films that make you feel things." Tsai Ming-Liang's films have a quiet sorrow about them as his characters drift through the world alone but, in rare and beautiful moments, make intimate contact with others. This film is about friendship, touch, intimacy, longing, class and social divisions, love, connection and everything else that matters.

  19. tintinmugshot's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

  20. Shandy Casteel's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Stuck the landing, which is more than most movies accomplish.

  21. Max Seqgar's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Excellent Malasian Nothing-Core! In such a cultural melting pot as KL, why use words when the body is a tell all?

  22. David R Williams's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    With this it become clear that Ming-Liang ranks among the masters of world and art house cinema. Hypnotic. Dream-like. Troubling. Even humorous. Beautifully composed and perfectly lit. Do any of the main characters even speak? There is no need. Their intents and desires are unmistakably clear. I want to dream this again.

  23. Joe Pryweller's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    Put me in the category of someone who appreciated the art and the mise en scene of the film but couldn't comprehend much in the way of meaning. The long takes and wide angle shots were master classes of form and of the entire frame telling the story. I just wish there was more story there to tell.

  24. raggiodisole's rating of the film I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

    the gentle mute whisperings of human emotions briefly roar into life at points, but the languid rhythms of human life are the main thing here
