a scary/beautiful look at our future
30 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

There I said it...BLADERUNNER

Why did i say it?..

because watching this movie reminded me how I felt the first time I saw Ridley Scott's masterpiece.

What gives?..

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
