The first time I saw “The Perfect Sleep,” it was just Gary Oldman and I sitting together to watch it. I knew his reaction to the film was terse and perhaps even abrupt, but I had no idea he and Bono and Bas Rutten all felt this strongly about it:
Now, come on… to be fair… “The Perfect Sleep” is a lovely update of the style of film noir, as filtered through a jet black sense of humor and a martial arts junkie’s wet dreams. And Jeremy Alter? The director of the film? Not just a good guy but also one the sharpest and most together guys I know in the business. Maybe he did something terrible to Gary Oldman. Whateve the truth, he’s not helping the film by posting this…
… or is he?
We’ll know by Monday.
Here’s wishing the director and the star/writer luck with the film, because I’d love hear Gary Oldman’s head explode from 10-15 miles away.
