A very ambitious and brave idea to attack the work of Philip Dick and with the use of the rotoscoping it adds to the film's sense of paranoia. A very good if slightly flawed movie.

Rotoscope was a brilliant way to capture the druggy weirdness of the original story, and casting a bunch of actors who had all been under the influence was a masterstroke. Obviously totally bonkers otherwise, but takes you on a trip without inhaling.

A Scanner Darkly
You can say what you about Richard Linklater and his work but not that he makes the same kind of film twice. But that doesn`t always work out very well, like in this sci-fi drama (with a bit of film noir). The story itself  I found to be quite interesting but the way it`s been brought to the screen started to get annoying quite fast. The animations draw the attention too much away from it instead of really adding something to it. You can wonder if this wouldn`t have just worked as a live action film?

A faithful adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel, A Scanner Darkly takes the viewer on a visual and mind-blowing journey into the author's conception of a drug-addled and politically unstable world.
