because watching this movie reminded me how I felt the first time I saw Ridley Scott's masterpiece.
Well, although the two movies are light years apart in terms of budget and storyline what caught me was that Sleep Dealer creates a 100% believable future with it's inherent beautiful,nasty and grotesque humanity/technology co-existence. Very few sci-fi movies ever get that right, its usually "too shiny". The future looks scary after viewing Sleep Dealer, and all too real. Roy Batty would approve.
Great acting, real looking (non-hollywood-ed) people, a plot ...that develops throughout the movie, even a love story of sorts, and all this with cinematography and music that accents the whole thing just right.
To all involved:
THANK YOU / MUCHISIMOS GRACIAS
