About the Movie

In a timeless city, a man with no name returns to the violent, brutal domain of assassins he left ten years before. There is no discernible reason for him to come back, save one: Porphyria, the girl he grew up with; the love of his life; the one thing he has ever wanted; the one thing he can never have.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Easy on the eyes but brutal on the ears, The Perfect Sleep fuses Shakespearean tragedy and noir iconography into a strange, lovely, leaden ball of confusion. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Unfortunately, Alter's often inventive work is kneecapped by a deliriously nonsensical script, which misses the mark as both over-the-top parody and straight-faced homage, and could have been intended as either. – Andrew Barker, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Rotten: Style significantly trumps substance in The Perfect Sleep, a good-looking but convoluted homage to film noir, Russian literature and Shakespearean tragedy, among a few too many other things. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The disjointed story is no more comprehensible than The Big Sleep. Though Alter is no Howard Hawks and Pardoe and Sanchez are no Bogie and Bacall, this movie looks great. You won't nap through The Perfect Sleep. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010
