Anyone seen it yet?
Is it anything like waking life?
I haven't seen it yet, but I'm planning on it. Movies that depict a totalitarian society have also appealed to me (read, 1984 by Orwell). Philip K Dick is an outstanding author, and hopefully the movie will do him justice. The rotoscoping looks phenomenal as well
its only in limited cities right now. nowhere near me. i doubt it will come to KY.. but i can hope.
i have the privelage of living in hollywood so i saw it. it was really really good.
It's at the indie-film theatre here, and I've not yet seen it. Looks INCREDIBLE.
I'll most definitely see it soon. I flipped through the graphic novel adaptation where they used stills directly from the movie. It looked awesome. Rory Cochrane is also in the movie. He's the guy that played Slater in Richard Linklater's "Dazed and Confused." It's also interesting how Wiley Wiggins, another "Dazed and Confused" star was the main player in "Waking Life" which is one of my top five favourite movies. I love the concept of 'A Scanner Darkly.'
Anyone know if it's coming to FL anytime soon?
It's got to be playing here somewhere
I'm going to see it on Saturday at a local indie theater. It looks awesome. We'll see
Me too. I am looking forward to it.
Nothing like hiding out in the air conditioned art house when the temp hits
Its currently playing at the Baxter Theater in Da Ville.
I expect the only thing to be simliar to Waking Life is the rotoscoping, I enjoy the look of it but am going to watch it trying to imagine like I never saw Waking Life.
It was an interesting movie. I was expecting more of a "futuristic" feel since one part of it is about scanning criminals through electronic means. The main character was an undercover cop who wore this suit that changed his appearance and voice randomly so no one could figure out who he really was..... but other than those two things, it wasn't very futuristic at all. It mostly dealt with drug use. It seems to me that the writer doesn't like drugs and feels that corporations either are, or are likely to knowledgablly destroy their customers on an addictive substance.
I dunno. It wasn't outright anti-corporation or anti-drugs, but I got the feeling that's what the movie was pushing. I was expecting a more anti-government feel to the movie, and I only felt that was a very slight undertone.
it wasn't bad, just different than what I was expecting. I think maybe the animation helped keanu's and winona's acting abilities
i enjoyed it very much. visually stunning and a captivating plot as well. i imagine it's not for everyone, but if you like to really think about the films you watch, i'd recommend it.

Sorry, couldn't help it.
I didn't like it, very artistic and good looking but the plot was shameful
