Movie: Sleep Dealer


A billboard with that image greeted me as I exited the freeway this morning. I immediately thought of the reveal sequence in The Matrix. If your mind didn’t go exactly there, it probably went to another science fiction movie. Props for the marketing. The tag line I saw was something like “If you don’t want to be hired, you’ve got to be wired.” It looks like this was a french movie released at the end of last year that’s getting a US release soon.


Set in a near-future, militarized world marked by closed borders, virtual labor and a global digital network that joins minds and experiences, three strangers risk their lives to connect with each other and break the barriers of technology. — IMDB

Also see this Wired Article. Amusingly, I found that searching for the movie tag line I saw on the billboard.

  1. Last week I noticed that this billboard had a swath of graffiti across it … Today I noticed the graffiti was gone. I had just enough time at stopped at the off ramp to realize that the graffiti had actually been painted over, reconstructing the original billboard. For some reason this strikes me as a fairly interesting job … that and I wonder if you have to by graffiti insurance when you pay for a billboard?
