Rarities (past events)Repertory Series ArchiveThe Good Works of Claire Denis (Part 1)

I Can’t Sleep

1994 • dir Claire Denis w/Katerina Golubeva, Richard Courcet, Vincent Dupont, Laurent Grévill, Alex Descas, Irina Grejbina, Line Renaud, Béatrice Dalle • 110 min • 35mm

In her third feature, Denis continues to focus on the lives of immigrants and outsiders while telling a story inspired by a real-life Parisian serial murderer dubbed the “Granny Killer.”

“Creepy in a very post-modern way, it’s a Godard film without Godard: eerie, touching, and fraught with meaning.”
– Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle

“Denis has created a beautifully shaped work that recognizes the dreamlike qualities of even the most awful moments in waking life.”
– Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
