A very good film, good delivered price. What does a scanner see?

A Scanner Darkly is set in suburban Orange County, California in a future where America has lost the war on drugs. When one reluctant undercover cop is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode.

It is a cautionary tale of drug use based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences. Like a graphic novel come to life, A Scanner Darkly uses live action photography overlaid with an advanced animation process (interpolated rotoscoping) to create a haunting, highly stylized vision of the future.

great film, bargain :thumbsup: heat added.

Got this on blu ray, look amazing

good price
film not so good - i liked the idea but not the result

the cartoonism was very annoying after a few minutes..........and the film seemed like a documentary almost, such was the good v bad dialogue

turned it off after 30 mins, visually annoying , MAY have been a good film, who knows........

*raises hand*

I thought this was great in the cinema. Brilliantly 'woozy' viewing. Great price. :thumbsup:

quality film, just noticed this post, lool!

PS: now on the hot page, took 2 months!>?

Regardless of time it took to get hot, excellent film!

couldnt watch it for more than five minutes, but Keanu Reeves will do that to you ...

Heat for the price and rep for the deal's perseverance!

Never give up, never surrender!

Good price, but hated the film personally.

This is possibly the worst film of all time.

Thought this was a really boring irritating film, the animation style added nothing at all to it for me.

OK film, but I enjoyed appreciating the cool visuals and the huge effort that went into making them.

D'ya reckon they filmed this normally, realised the script and the acting were terrible, then tried to save it with the comic-book-look thing?

Voted hot for the price, and but not a good movie.

Good price heat added. I couldn't wait for this film to come out, having read the book I thought the comic style would make this a cult classic. I had high hopes for it being comparable to Fear and Lothing. Unfortunately, as with a lot of others, the film really is a let down. As per sellingmysoul666 "i liked the idea but not the result"

Nope, it was always meant to be animated. The original idea was how they got so many big actors on board.

Anyway I *loved* this film, great plot and acting, very trippy. You get used to the cartoony effect after 5 minutes of so, adds lot to the movie.

I still need to see this!

I agree, and irritating in a pitiful way.

I like interesting, so called 'cult' films, independent, foreign films, quirky, original, over long, off-beat films, films with shocks, surprises, unhappy endings, stylish films, unpredictable films, confusing films, unfathomable films. I like films that make you think, make you angry, make you understand.

But this film is just self-absorbed verbal and visual diarrhea. It is not interesting, it is not funny, it is not intriguing, it is not anything but desperate. It is an exercise in producing the most dull and over-hyped, useless waste of time ever.

At best it should have been a 5 minute experimental short film. One where you watch it back and decide never to go down that route again

The emperors new clothes is all I can say to anybody that enjoyed it!

Only to see how bad it is, but if you really want to find out how it feels to donate two hours of your life to the most unrewarding experience you can imagine then go right ahead.

My honest advice is to watch the opening sequence with the druggy bugs then turn off. It is the only bit in the whole film that is of any interest. You will torture yourself waiting for the payoff which never comes!

Okay, I contradict myself: It is unpredictable... in a way!

Yeah I watched this based on some supposedly good reviews and it turned out to be a complete snooze...
