Watch: The Perfect Sleep 2009 123movies, Full Movie Online – Against the backdrop of a noirish dreamscape, a tortured man returns to the city he swore he would never return to, in order to save the woman he has always loved yet can never have..

Worst. Film Noire. Ever.
Film Noire is a genre that requires a certain level of tact, cleverness, intellect, and imagery. This movie has none of that, though they really tried hard with the imagery.
It’s the kind of movie that your cousin Marky the dump truck driver, who’s always talking about how he’s going to make it big in the movies someday, would make.
The dialogue is wooden and lifeless. The visuals, while obviously expensive to make, are the work of a director who has tried to be clever and failed miserably due to a severe lack in cerebral ability. The acting ranged from sub-par to just plain bad. The story might have been salvaged by a real writer and director, but I suspect that such people would not have touched it with a barge pole.
About 1/4 of the way through, I noticed striking similarities with the scene in Sim0ne where Viktor, desperate to be rid of his actress, makes the world’s worst movie. I figured I’d check IMDb to see if a similar effect has occurred in this movie, and to my surprise it has. I’d almost be tempted to give a 2 out of 10 just because it’s exposed the pretentious groupies, but I won’t. It’s that bad.
