The Perfect Sleep - The Mad Monk returns to a timeless city in Hard Boiled Noir

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.

Directed by Jeremy Alter. Starring Roselyn Sanchez, Patrick Bauchau, Tony Amendola, Isaac Singleton, Peter J. Lucas, Anton Pardoe, Sam Thakur, Dominiquie Vandenberg, Cameron Daddo, Michael Paré, John Fleck, Dmitri S. Boudrine, Anthony Dee, Keith Allan, Pasha Lychnikoff

That all sounds like a whole lot of yummy noir goodness doesn't it. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

Twitch say it will begin its limited theatrical run on 13th March at the Sunset Laemmle Theatre in Los Angeles before heading to New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Portland. I live in Liverpool in England so doubt I'll get to see it at any of those places.
