Sleep Dealer

Sleep Dealer is an impressive new sci-fi flick from Mexico. The near-future dystopia it presents is extremely realistic on a few current issues of ever-growing importance: drone attacks, privatized water access, and the US-Mexico border wall. The more futuristic issue is telepresence robots, or "Waldos". In some ways this is one of the most realistic cyberpunk films so far. The limited action sequences are completely believable - no invulnerable heros here, thankfully.
