Rating: 4/5 -- what you'll be left with after seeing Sleep Dealer is not a collection of cool scenes so much as a collection of compelling questions about where our world is headed Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Sleep Dealer is flawed, but still vibrant and inventive. Whether he finds larger budgets or keeps doing movie like this, Rivera is definitely a filmmaker to follow. Full Review

Made on the cheap compared to Hollywood flicks, this thrillingly original and heartfelt Mexican film is a truly human story about the impact of technology on individuals and on society. Full Review

An important movie with a lot of deep themes and spearpoint for the new Mexican sci-fi. [Full review in Spanish] Full Review

[There] exists an inkling of a cinema of hope, humanity, and ideas far more intriguing than anything Hollywood sci-fi seems capable of offering.

Rating: 4/5 -- Sleep Dealer is an unusually thoughtful science fiction film, using the speculative energy of the genre to explore some troubling and complex contemporary issues.

Rating: 9/10 -- full of plausible evolutions of current technology with a believable if not pleasant feel for how these changes will fit into our world. Full Review

Product Description:

SLEEP DEALER is a Spanish-language science fiction film whose visions of the future are informed by current technological and social trends. Memo (Luis Fernando Peña) is desperate to escape his tiny Mexican hometown, and his radio intercept allows him a glimpse at the outside world. But soon he overhears a top-secret conversation he never should have had access to, and now he and his family are targets. When he finally does leave his home for Tijuana, he is on the run. When he meets pretty Luz (Leonor Varela) in the new city, she offers him friendship and the technology he needs to get a job, but she may also put his life in danger.
