Trailer Alert: Sleepwalk with Me

July 17, 2012

I know, I know, I owe you all an update about life and where I am at and such.  Rest assured that that is coming.  For now I would like to ease back into this whole blogging thing (Really, January was the last time that I finished a post, yikes!) by showing you a trailer for one of my most anticipated films of the rest of the year.

I really enjoy Mike Birbiglia as a comedian.  His album “Two Drink Mike” has some great beats that always crack me up no matter how many times I have heard them.  With “My Secret Public Journal Live,” he really improved his ability to tell a cohesive story through his comedy.  “Sleepwalk with Me” was first a comedy album and then Birbiglia turned it into a book and now it has become a film.  I am a big fan of both the album and the book because I think they elevate his storytelling chops even a step further by tying all of his great comedy stories, some hilarious, others touching, and still others with a tinge of sadness, into a full narrative with a beginning, middle, and end.  I look forward to seeing how he visualizes all of his jokes and am already cracking a smile at some of the pieces that I see hinted at in the trailer.  Behind Looper and Skyfall (okay and The Dark Knight Rises, but that is so close!) this is probably my third most anticipated film for the rest of the year and it comes out next month.  Have a look:
