is one of many movies I am anticpating seeing this year. One of the many reasons that I want to go see this film is due to the process of how it is made. The movie is made using live-action photography overlaid with animation or interpolated rotoscoping which was also used in Richard Linklater‘s Waking Life. The second reason is because it is based on Phillip K. Dick‘s book: “A Scanner Darkly“. The third reason for my wanting to see this film is that it is one of many films that are set dystopian future.
It is becoming a more common theme in movies recently like The Island and the other movie I am anticpating on seeing this year: V For Vendetta which is based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore. Is it with the ongoing rise of Spy Cams, CCTV, and Domestic Spying (which A Scanner Darkly addresses) that it is coming to a time where: “People Should Not Be Afraid Of Their Governments. Governments Should Be Afraid Of Their People.”?
