[Sleeping Dogs] almost single-handedly created a climate of acceptance within the country for a Kiwi film industry.
– Jonathan Dowling looks back at the film's impact, The Evening Post, 27 February 1988
...don't you ever worry about killing the wrong man?
– Smith (Sam Neill)
For a debut, Sleeping Dogs is precociously accomplished ... like Hitchcock's Saboteur, Sleeping Dogs is suffused with paranoia, mistaken identity and breathless chase. Unconventionally and convincingly, Donaldson makes the case that there is no such thing as existentialism, no personal gains to flying solo.
– Critic Carrie Rickey in Village Voice, 9 March 1982
