Another one of Woody Allen's early funny films. A futuristic story clever and witty as always.

This film is not to be taking seriously, it's supposed to be stupidly funny and provide you with a great time of entertainment. In Sleeper Woody Allen combined verbal and a lot of physical humour, delivering a great performance together with Dianne Keaton.

The concept of the story is very cool, all of the futuristic the design sets and vehicles are minimalist and original.

Social satire is also very present, specially in political aspects. Woody's back in 1973 was trying to show how the world could be exaclty the same in those aspects even 200 years ahead of it's time, and it is also another proof that even today some things are not different or ever will be in the future.
