"Sleep Dealer" is a wondrous thing to behold, with its saturated cinematography, its unnervingly realistic vision of the future, its singular focus on U.S.-Mexico border politics and its supremely taut storytelling.
— Carolina A. Miranda, LA Times
Set in a dystopian future of corporate and military control. Water is privatized, the U.S./ Mexico border is closed, and border towns, including Tijuana, are sites for virtual reality factories. This Sundance hit is a smart, haunting cautionary tale that feels eerily familiar.
