    ok

    A Scanner Darkly (2006)

    "A Scanner Darkly" is set in suburban Orange County, California in the future. It imagines a paranoid world in which it seems two of every 10 Americans has been hired by the government to spy on the other 8 -- in the name of national security and drug enforcement. When one reluctant government recruit (Reeves) is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched on a journey into the absurd, where outsourced government contractors largely define the social construct, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode, and where not even his girlfriend can be trusted. The film highlights the inconsistencies and ironic consequences of the war on drugs.

    a few weeks ago i was listening to this dnb mix i'd downloaded.
    one of the tunes had a sample in it and i was wondering what movie the sample came from
    when i saw the trailer the other day i heard the sample.
    fucking funny shit in this information age.
    that mix was made a month and a half ago

    The story sounds interesting, but I don't think I can watch two hours of that wierd, jumpy/fluid animation.


    I guess I'll have to read the book instead.

    Does he plug something into the back of his neck?

    I hope he plugs something into the back of his neck.

    the fluid animation is strange

    it was in waking life so i know what to expect.
    defintely heightens the whole 'strung out' feel it seems they might be going for.

    I watched about 20 minutes of Waking Life... the combination of that animation and his style of dialogue was too much for me.

    I saw that one on the big screen ... by the time I was walking out I was drained on all levels ... But I think I need to watch it again ... but in sections this time.

    However I am excited about this one, I think the animation wont be as trying as it was in Waking life. Plus the style has had a bit of time to develop, so I would think its a bit cleaner.

    I read an interview with the director where he talked about how the animation in Waking Life adapted to the conversations and situations going on at the moment, which is why it sometimes went overboard with the wacky visuals. In this movie he nailed down a specific, consistent style throughout the whole movie.
