Saul at Night

Release Date: November 23, 2019

Run Time: 1 hour & 25 minutes

As a result of a bizarre experiment, Saul Capgras (Kentucker Audley) is forced to become acclimated to a life of isolation at night, while the rest of the city is restricted to sleep and a mandated curfew. Saul is the only person left awake at night, and, while still living with his wife and daughter, he must discover inventive ways to experience their lives.

This felt like a Black Mirror episode…

For, what I believe to be, a small budget film, Saul at Night‘s acting was good and the plot was much better than expected! Very refreshing, interesting, and thought provoking. Which isn’t always the case with small budgets.

Everyone has a mandated sleep curfew, except for Saul. Instead, he’s chosen to help with the experiment and stay up while everyone else sleeps. The catch is, when everyone else is awake, Saul has to sleep. Thus missing out on a life with his family. Saul is to doing this to provide for them though, which is keeping him going. The whole vibe of this film felt a little too close to quarantine… and it was made before the pandemic!

Overall, I liked it. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it. Mostly because I was left with too many questions in the end. In my opinion, that could’ve been avoided.

If you’re a fan of Black Mirror and have been jonesing for more episodes, check out Saul at Night. It’s currently available on AppleTV, Amazon & Altavod.
