  • A clarinet player who also runs a health food store is frozen and brought back in the future by anti-government radicals in order to assist them in their attempts to overthrow an oppressive government. When he goes off on his own, he begins to explore this brave new world that has Orgasmatron booths to replace sex and confessional robots. show more

  • Sleeper establishes Woody Allen as the best comic director and actor in America, a distinction that would mean more if there were more comedies being made. show more
