Worth Watching - Feb 20: Alex Rivera's Sleep Dealer Trailer
Remember that trippy Matrix-like poster I put up a few days ago for a film called Sleep Dealer? Well, here's the official trailer, courtesy of IGN, if you've been waiting to see it. Sleep Dealer debuted at Sundance last year and is a low-budget sci-fi story set in Mexico. This trailer actually does a great job of summing up the entire story, so I don't need to go into it myself, I'll just let you watch this. Though don't forget that I really hated this. Out of all the films I saw at Sundance that year, this was one of my very least favorite films. That said, a few of you may like this trailer enough to give it a shot anyway. So take a look!
Watch the trailer for Alex Rivera's Sleep Dealer:
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.
