Hard Boiled Action-Noir THE PERFECT SLEEP Hits Screens March 13th!

We've got a swarm of noir fans here at ScreenAnarchy and this post goes out to all of you. Got a love for femmes fatales and tougher than nails anti-heroes? The starting on March 13th, get yourself to the Sunset Laemmle Theatre in Los Angeles. Why? Because that's when Jeremy Alter's The Perfect Sleep begins its limited theatrical run before heading to New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Portland.

In a timeless city, a man with no name returns to the violent, brutal domain of assassins he left ten years before – back when they dubbed him The Mad Monk for his disregard for his own life and his intense devotion to one woman, Porphyria; a beautiful, luminescent woman; 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.

There is no discernible reason for him to come back to this ruthless city, save one. She still lives here, she is in danger, and he – a man gifted in the art of killing – may be the only one who can save her. Waiting for him are deadly men who would like nothing more than to see him die a painful death. Standing at their forefront is the formidable Nikolai, the man who raised him and just might be his father.

I had a chance to catch an early screening of this and Alter is pretty much a genius with the camera, the film every bit as striking as the gorgeous trailer that you'll find below the break.

Dammit this looks so good - a proper noir feel with modern action, all enthused with a light touch not dissimilar to Millers Crossing. I. Want. It. Now. Seriously, any word on a UK release?
