Chattanooga Film Festival: Sleep (2022)

Director and writer Alexandra Pechman (who wrote an episode of the lamented Channel Zero, “Where Did You Sleep Last Night”) has an audacious idea here: film Kate Adams (who was also in her film Thumb) for nearly four minutes in the same unmoving shot as she loses her mind at the sound of home invaders just feet away from her.

Bonus — many bonus — points given for ending this as a variation of the urban legend of the licking dog, yet adding plenty more to that tale. No spoilers — this is an inspired film that truly could only work as a short. Well done.
