  1. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

  2. ricardoetatto's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Interesante relato de ciencia ficción, muy bien realizado, con economía de recursos y una fotografía y efectos bastante decentes. Sorprende el género dentro del cine mexicano, poco común. Además, se nota la influencia de Cronenberg en cuanto a la estética y la fusión del hombre con las máquinas, en filmes como Existenz y Videodrome. El desenlace es un poco cursi y previsible, idealista, mas no deja de valer la pena.

  3. Zepo's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Buena historia con analogías politicas de restricción de agua por medio de empresas privadas, y de inmigración y la eterna marginacion de este lado de la frontera. Sorprende, que yo recuerde nunca habia visto tanta calidad en una película mexicana de ciencia ficcion. Si esta es la opera prima de Alex Rivera, lo quiero ver en algunos años

  4. Pablo EguiArte's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Una modesta pero gratamente sorprendente película mexicana de Sci-Fi con mucha realidad inmersa. En esta historia confluyen temas importantes como la realidad virtual en la que nos hemos enclaustrado, la migración, el trabajo desgastante en las grandes corporaciones, el control del gobierno sobre los derechos básicos y la desconexión con nuestras raices, entre otras cosas. Muy recomendable!!

  5. El Mau's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Pues así que emocionante que digamos no mucho... pero es honesta...

  6. Miguel Macías B.'s rating of the film Sleep Dealer

  7. dakotah's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Interesting this was the first Latin American futuristic/sci fi film. The comments on immigration were spot on but the editing choices could not be over looked. Cliche and cheesy

  8. anarresti's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    This has the basic pillars for a classical dystopian sci-fi movie. And it does well on all fronts. It has a a very good premise. And uses it to address reality and current society. The story is good, the characters are strong. Being sci-fi, it is convincing, we are transported to the reality of the story, and what matters is the story. It's a mexican, spanish speaking movie,which adds to the credibility of its story.

  9. rociof's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Es buena la idea pero no logra llegar a su objetivo. Reminiscencias de Hollywood y de la frontera Tijuana-San Diego.

  10. seakat's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    I found many inconsistencies throughout the movie, but I accept that I was surprised to find a mexican syfy movie.

  11. babesshh's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Una analogía socio-política muy precisa, con el tema del agua, migración, relaciones sociales etc.

  12. prudence's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    A great film. Smart sci-fi for the thinking

  13. Sophia Park's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    SyFy production values. incredibly unlikely premises. strange as hell conclusion. paradoxically boring and some phoned in acting performances. what a chore.

  14. mpho3's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Better than I expected it to be, but not as good as I wanted it to be. Socially conscious sci fi that is still worth viewing.

  15. Koalacanth's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

  17. edgar edgar's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Fantastic metaphor on leaving home and disillusionment

  18. Prometheus Brown's rating of the film Sleep Dealer

    Only 2 stars? This deserves better. The virtual-reality premise has lots of holes in it but the film more than makes up for it with its unique take on labor and technology from a perspective rarely (if ever) seen in sci-fi. Its social commentary is sharp but not screaming. I look forward to more from Alex Rivera.
