"Alan Berliner, whose work has included Nobody's Business, about his father, and The Sweetest Sound, about his name, has the gift of addressing intimate subjects and making them universal," extolled Variety. "Nowhere has he done this better than with 'Wide Awake, in which he uses dazzlingly edited movie outtakes, self-portraiture, TV commercials, homemovies, in-her-face footage of his comfortably sleeping wife (who, of course, wakes up) and the advice of sleep specialists, all in an effort not just to figure out why he can't sleep, but to determine what sleep means."
