Winner of six Goya Awards (the Spanish equivalent of the Oscar) including Best Film, No Rest For the Wicked (No habra paz para los malvados) is now available to US audiences. After an eight-year absence from moviemaking, celebrated director Enrique Urbizu (Box 507, Life Marks) makes a extraordinary return to the screen with this powerful cop drama.
No Rest For the Wicked has transfixed audiences around the globe, recently screening to riveted crowds at Fantastic Fest. The film centers on Santos Trinidad (the great José Coronado), a dirty and violent cop with a penchant for vice. During a drunken bender, he murders three people in a bar in front of a frightened witness who escapes from the building, successfully evading Santos. While Santos sets out to cover up his crimes, a judge and the police conduct an investigation into the murders, slowly revealing a massive criminal conspiracy.
With the thriller’s intertwining plot lines and volatile results, No Rest for the Wicked is already attracting attention stateside. Variety praises the film as “the kind of movie that gives dramas about bad cops a good name." Already one of the top grossing films of the year in Spain, No Rest for the Wicked is essential viewing for any fan of the genre.
No Rest for the Wicked is also available on digital platforms such as iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant, VUDU and more.
