Worth Watching - Feb 8: The Perfect Sleep Trailer
I don't know what this is but damn does it look good! Information on this film and the trailer originally came from Ain't It Cool News, and after watching it I really wanted to share it with all of you. The film is titled The Perfect Sleep and could be best described as "masochism noir". In essence, the lead character has two desires: cause pain to other people, and survive as much pain as he can himself. There's about as much violence in this trailer than almost all of Rambo and yet it still seems like it could be good, or at least maybe a cult hit. What do you guys think?

The Perfect Sleep is directed by budding filmmaker Jeremy Alter, who has one short film titled The Godson previously and who has been working in the movie industry for a long time. The script was written by Alter's writing partner Anton Pardoe. The Perfect Sleep is currently premiering at the Berlin Film Festival as we speak but doesn't have a distributor yet. Expect it to arrive in theaters sometime this year once it gets picked up.

Re: AICN I remember he thought "Six String Samurai" was the greatest film ever made. Then I remember how it turned out his reviewers were not the "insiders" his readers were lead to believe. And, by the way, Micky Rourke is known for a bit more than Marv. You're showing your age...

For the love of all things holy, when will they stop using that fucking scream (1:26). It was taken from a Mountain Dew commercial over a decade ago and has been beating to death. Other than that, look cool.

That scream is WAAAAY older than a Mountain Dew commercial. That's the wilhelm scream, it's been around pretty much as long as movies with sound has been around.

I'm probably wrong, but isn't there a few trailers where we're given the definition of Film Noir? It seems like I've seen it before. And hey...do the dew.

That is not the Wilhelm Scream. It's some bad Stock Scream that has indeed been way overused and is just annoying to hear.

looks okay, probably a cult classic in the making and hollywood could do with updating their soundboards, theres this one sound effect of a metal gate/door opening ive heard so many times in movies and video games i can almost hear it my sleep now

It's funny... the "scream" was something I came away from the trailer with as well. Us movieheads huh? This wasn't something that screamed (pun intended) I need to watch it. While it does seem intriguing and somewhat fun, it just lacked the overall knockout punch. At first I thought the female was Kim Kardashian... I'll watch any film with her in it! Even if Ray J's directing...

This seems fantastic to me! I've watched the trailer 10 times already and I am not even into really violent films (such as Rambo). I just like the setting and how they mix eras (I doubt they had wind power in the 30s). It reminds me a little bit of Max Payne. If the scream bothers you so much, you can watch the trailer on the official website. It doesn't have the scream, maybe they'll take it out of the movie.
