  1. The Macho King's rating of the film Sleeping Giant

    The main thing that bothered me in this film was Jackson Martin who played Adam. The kid got the acting capabilities of a used lawn gnome...its like watching a 15yr old boy role playing as a 5yr old deaf/mute girl that has only two facial expressions to half heartedly convey emotions to other human beings with. 90% of the time the kid looks like he's blankly peering into another dimension just to witness paint dry.

  2. virginwolf's rating of the film Sleeping Giant

    Beautifully shot coming of age film. Take it as a nice summer vacation - best used in melancholic winter.

  3. msmichel's rating of the film Sleeping Giant

    All the insecurities, cruelty, competiveness, and self centered behaviour of youth is evident in this well written debut film from Andrew Cividino that expands his short film. The acting may be a little amateurish in spots but the fine scripting, cinematography and music score more than compensate for any short comings. Not often one sees the beauty of the Ontario north on film (shot north of Superior).

  7. Jason's rating of the film Sleeping Giant

    Wonderfully goddamn unpleasant Canadian feature. The campaign was essentially victorious from the casting on. I cannot recall another recent film where young people have worn themselves w/ such vigor. Deeply unsettling, not because of the deus ex machina we (sort of) see coming a mile away, but because of the frisson of truth. If you have grown up, especially in Canada (perhaps), you can expect this movie to gut you.

  8. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Sleeping Giant

    Once upon a time, a young filmmaker saw a giant cliff next to a lake, and he said "I WANNA MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT TWO KIDS JUMPING OFF THAT CLIFF!" And so he did. Quite literally a 90 minute student film.

  9. Kamran's rating of the film Sleeping Giant

    Review published at Next Projection [REVIEW] 86/100 - THE SLEEPING GIANT (Andrew Cividino) Sleeping Giant is deeply personal, and its genuine spirit is palpably found in every shot. Read full review: http://nextprojection.com/2015/09/30/viff-sleeping-giant-deeply-personal/
