About A Scanner Darkly

Experimental director Richard Linklater uses rotoscoping animation techniques for a faithful adaptation of sci-fi legend and drug addict Philip K. Dick's most autobiographical work. Set seven years in the future when drugs are taking over America, undercover cop Fred (Keanu Reeves) is addicted to a drug called Substance D, which causes split personalities in users. In his spare time, he becomes drug dealer Bob who hangs out with coke addict girlfriend Donna (Winona Ryder), loony Barris (Robert Downey Jr) and loose cannon Luckman (Woody Harrelson). Things get further complicated when Fred is asked to take Bob down, so that the cop and criminal sides of his personality collide in this dreamlike tale of paranoia, personality and drug destruction. Weird, yes. Confusing, definitely. But truly unique too.
