Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep ★★★★★

My full review

I’m at a loss for words, I can’t seem to put into this review how vibrant and relieved Doctor Sleep left me and how it’s the greatest King adaptation since The Green Mile. I can talk about why I always loved The Shining and it’s many fascinating, obsessive qualities and the strange draw in wanting to return to such a singular and terrifying world. Doctor Sleep approaches this task with every possible angle and presents the audience with something that isn’t imitating or reimagining but expanding and growing, filing the void with more mystery and ideas and giving us some answers, and while all the big, unsettling set pieces are the most memorable of the year it’s the smaller moments, the ones that have different tinges of dread, that scream the loudest.
