Check This Out: Poster for Alex Rivera's Sleep Dealer
I'm sure this will get the attention of a few people. The teaser poster for Alex Rivera's Sleep Dealer has been revealed. The only problem is that I hated this film, I mean seriously hated it. So much so that I've neglected to mention it ever since I first saw it at Sundance last year (not this year). I don't care that it won awards at the fest or that a few other people liked it a lot more than me, I thought it was one big steaming pile of crap. That said, this poster is pretty sleek, I just wish there was a better film to go along with it.
Sleep Dealer is directed by first-time fillmmaker Alex Rivera, of only the short film The Sixth Section previously. The screenplay was written by Rivera as well as David Riker and was developed at the Sundance Institute. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008 and went on to win the Alfred P. Sloan award and Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, which are both outstanding achievements. Sleep Dealer was eventually picked up by Maya Entertainment and will finally hit limited theaters on April 17th.

well, like to see that you have judged and movie and found it not worthy of love. WELL I FIND YOU WORTHY. Nah not really but come on give us something about the movie, trailer or behind the scenes. It's probably something few people will like, not everyone.

Maybe you can tell us why it was bad. I think you owe that to your audience when you label anything a steaming pile of crap. Why?
