best science fiction movie I've seen in years

Sleep Dealer. I don't know why this movie didn't get a whole lot of attention. Well, actually, I do. There was a year in the '80s when three great little scifi movies came out: Brother From Another Planet, Repo Man, and Night of the Comet. This is in that category: smart, human, low budget science fiction. Which means it's too odd for the people who don't like science fiction, and it's too focused on characters for the people who want action spectaculars. Emma and I loved it.

Most of it's in Spanish, so English-speakers who hate subtitles won't like it either. But it's a great movie. If I had awesome psychic powers, I would make everyone see it.
