    In Paul Schrader`s compelling character study Light Sleeper, John Le Tour (Willem Dafoe) is loyal, decent, lumbering - a 40-year-old drug runner who suffers from insomnia but seems to be sleep-walking through life. When John`s boss, the bubbly but sharp-witted Ann (Susan Sarandon), decides to retire, John must rethink his life`s path.

    But breaking out of the life he`s led will take some doing, especially after coming into contact with his ex-girlfriend (Dana Delany), a recovering drug addict, and becoming embroiled in a mysterious murder. With echoes of Schrader`s script for Taxi Driver, Light Sleeper is one of the director`s most memorable explorations of the underbelly of American life.
