Richard Linklater leveraged the animation
techniques first pioneered by
Bob Sabiston and Tommy Pollotta in their 14-minute short
Roadhead back in 1998, in the existential
Waking Life. Indie film fans were intrigued by that effort, however, not half as intrigued as scifi fans will
be when they see the dementedly cool
trailer for A
Scanner Darkly, staring Keanu, Winnona, Woody, and Downey. The film is based on the a story by
Philip K. Dick.
PlasticBoy sums it up "I try not to get excited about movies before I've seen them anymore, in order to avoid setting myself up for disappointment, but it's hard to resist with this one."
