      Marie G Loved it. Funny, witty and carefully written. I love how it's beautifully shot in black and white also. So impressed and refreshing to see original films like this one! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/23 Full Review Dewa J The cinematography is on point!!! This young director is going places. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Dave C I'm a fan! Loved everything about this. The right balance with humor, crime and suspense. I was laughing but also on the edge. Excellent cast selection also, felt like that toke it to another level. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Nuol R Loved everything about this. Quality shots with a great cast like Susan Sarandon and John Turturro. The dialogue was perfect as was the plot. The film is basically about a struggling hypnotist in NY who ends up being blackmailed into being a hit man by a mysterious woman who finds out his degree is fake. So much going on, it was funny and exciting with plenty of plot twists. I was on the edge of my sofa the whole time and that black and white really added another level to this film. It's watch from me. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Jacob J Loved everything about this! Great film with lots of plot twists and a really surprising ending. Susan Sarandon and John Turturro did a great job here and really made this film come alive. Well done to everyone involved. This is for sure one of those films comedy/crime films that will have you on the edge of your seat right to the very end. Easily 5 stars from me Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/28/23 Full Review Zani S I heard a lot about this from so I checked it out. I'm blown away for the fact that this was a debut from a young director. Impressive work, great directing, clean quality shots and audio. Other filmmakers need to take note - this is how you make your first film. The script was solid, didn't drag out in any parts and it was straight to the point. Very edgy, lots of laughs and lots of twists and turns. Well done I'm hoping more from the director and everyone involved. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …while Forty Winks doesn’t conform to expectations of what a conventional film might be, it’s easy to recommend for anyone who wants to see something original or idiosyncratic, two qualities that run right through this film from soup to nuts… Rated: 4/5 Mar 7, 2024 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It's impressive someone so young can make on his own such a competent film.
