  • The genre bending and narrative twisting NO REST FOR BRAVE (PAS DE REPOS POUR LES BRAVES) marks the feature film debut of French experimental filmmaker Alain Guiraudie. Basile has a dream where a mysterious figure warns him that his next sleep will be his last, and resolves never to slumber again. His intentional insomnia unhinges his mind, and he commits a series of murders that send him on the run from the authorities and the media--at which point Basile, in a bizarre narrative turn, becomes involved in a gang war as a man named Hector. Guiraudie's meandering and disjointed narrative structure has been compared to that of David Lynch.

  • Critic Reviews
    "The tone here is as changeable as the narrative, drawing on slacker comedy, twisty noir mystique and flat-out avant-garde fantasy."

    "[There's a] tongue-in-cheek sense to the film's genre-bending whimsy."
