The Perfect Sleep
The Perfect Sleep – Movie Review
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.
“The Perfect Sleep” is Sam Spade meets Fyodor Dostoevsky. I loved the look of this movie; I love the sound of this movie. The narrator is really never named. He’s a guy who’s been adopted along with his twin sister, by a man known as the Maharaja. Other great characters are the Mad Monk and Porphyria, his true love. Not to worry, although it’s bit complex, you won’t care because you’re along for the ride. It’s violent and stylish. It’s spoken like it was right out of the 1940’s. It’s about love, honor, violence, and the ties that bind. I just loved the whole thing. This one gets four stars.
