I Don't Want to Sleep Alone Synopsis

Forest fires burn in Sumatra; a smoke covers Kuala Lumpur. Grifters beat an immigrant day laborer and leave him on the streets. Rawang, a young man, finds him, carries him home, cares for him, and sleeps next to him. In a loft above lives a waitress. She sometimes provides care and attention. More violence seems a constant possibility. They find another man abandoned on the street, paralyzed. They carry him. While no one speaks to each other, sounds dominate: coughing, cooking, coupling, opening bags; music and news reports on a radio, the rattle and buzz of a restaurant. It's dark in the city at night. We see down hallways, through doors, down alleys. Who sleeps with whom?

This film is not highly recommended for impatient viewers who want variety, action and more action in films.  There is a slowness that the film evokes,  very minimal dialogues, too, but viewers can pick up insights and ideas along the way.  The static shots, suggestive gestures and minimalist factor make this Tsai film unique from the rest.  Watch the film and be prepared to read between the lines.  Worth checking out!
