A Scanner What?

First off I never quite understood the meaning behind this films animated adaptation. The animation was awful, something any first design student could have pulled off with a hacked version of Adobe Flash Pro. How Keanu Reeves manages a career in the acting business I will never know. Although Robert Downey Jr. poured in a decent performance, I hardly think it was a stretch from his normal life. ... read more

A let down

Grand Assault's review is spot on in this case. I too wanted this movie to be so much more, and was fascinated by the trippy animation, but overrall it was a dissapointment. This film had a great theme and animation, and the 'concept' of the plot was decent, but through most of the movie, the dialogue was just too distracting and off-topic that I just got lost and stopped caring about what happe... read more

''The pain, so unexpected and undeserved had for some reason cleared away the cobwebs. I realized I didn't hate the cabinet door, I hated my life... My house, my family, my backyard, my power mower. Nothing would ever change; nothing new could ever be expected. It had to end, and it did. Now in the dark world where I dwell, ugly things, and surprising things, and sometimes little wondrous things, ... read more

Description: Set in the not-too-distant future where a new drug, substance D, has created an epidemic, 'A Scanner Darkly' charts the mental unraveling of Bob Arctor (Keanu Reeves). Arctor is an undercover cop who has been assigned to track a group of individuals who include the druggily verbose Barris (Robert Downey Jr.), the hyper-intense Luckman (Woody Harrelson), the ultra-paranoid Freck (Rory Cochrane), and the beautiful Donna (Winona Ryder). As the film unfolds and Arctor finds himself abusing substance D in order to maintain his façade, his mind begins to spin out of control, to the point where he doesn't know what's real and what isn ...

"In the near future, as America virtually loses the war on drugs, Robert Arctor, a narcotics cop in Orange County, California becomes an addict to a drug called Substance D when he goes undercover. The way this movie has been filmed using a technique called rotoscoping will either be a revelation to you or become a distraction. It will keep your attention that's for sure. Storywise, though, the number one task here is a very clear anti-drug message that is hammered in repeatedly accompanied by a"

"Philip K. Dick's style of paranoid, mind-bending SF meets one of Waking Life/Boyhood director Richard Linklater's low-key slices-of-life in this unusual animated thriller, about addicts spying on each other in a future America. Keanu Reeves stars as an undercover cop who's investigating drug-trafficking by becoming part of a community of users (played by Winona Ryder, Woody Harrelson and Robert Downey, Jr.). The electronically-aided disguises and personality-altering pills align this adaptation "

The future kind of sucks. (367 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: A super drug, known as Substance D, has hit the streets, symptoms include paranoia and super gnarly hallucinations. Year it takes place: Seven years from 2006, after America has lost the war on drugs. Update: Exact year, 2013"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" Philip K. Dick seems like he should be a hard writer to film, and yet, because adaptations of his work attract talented and experimental filmmakers, they tend to be some of the most interesting and beloved by fans. A Scanner Darkly achieved its look by animating over a digital live-action recording, and the effect is realistic for an animation but detached from reality. The overall impression is rough and ready, but on closer inspection the animation is incredibly detailed down to the slightes"
