    Holy shit is Keanu a bad actor.

    The animation looks great, though.

    Woody Harrelson sounded like Jesse James in that little clip.

    Yeah, been following this. It's based on my favorite Phillip K. Dick book (Minority Report, Bladerunner, Screamers, shitty shitty Paycheck), and it's probably his darkest and most drug-fueled work. Basic plot of the book is the main character (Keanu) is an undercover narc who takes a drug called Substance D (I think) in order to remain undercover and it begins to split his brain into two different conciousness states, so while he's still the undercover cop, he is also a bigtime drug dealer and he winds up hunting himself.

    If they keep it close to the book it'll be great, but Hollywood has a tendancy to butcher the fuck out of PKD stories and with the exception of Bladerunner they have all failed.

    However, Linklater is talented and has a shitload of indie cred (unlike Speilburg and Woo) and he might be able to pull it off. The technique they are using is the same one that Linklater used for his film Waking Life, why they chose to use it I am not sure, but the body suits from the story which are used to scramble identities seem to be done really well in this style.

    Originally, Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine, Being John Malkovich, etc) wrote a script for this story that was almost word for word matching the book, but the studio decided they didn't like it, which is why I am concerned about how it's going to turn out. A Linklater-Kaufman match-up would have been awesome.

    I downloaded this movie about 4 months ago but only got it thai with no subtitles. Shit was hot. I think there were a few wires involved though. could be wrong.

    ...watched it last night on DVD. Awesome fighting, shitty plot. Worth the watch for sure though.

    The animation in this movie looks awesome, but it looks like it's not really animated...just a series of really cool video filters, and from fermentor's info sounds like it has a lot of potential...that is, if they don't fuck it up.
