Just saw “A Scanner Darkly,” the new Philip K. Dick film. Great movie. So refreshingly original. The entire film was rotoscoped — filmed with live actors and then colored to look like a cartoon. The effect really fit the film — after seeing it you can understand why the director, Richard Linklater, decided to go in that direction.

The film deals with drug abuse and appropriately starred a who’s who of Hollywood miscreants — Keanu Reeves, Robert Downy Jr., Woody Harrelson, and Wynona Ryder. (Did Ryder ever get busted for drugs or did she just shoplift?)

Anyhoo, I strongly recommend it. Here are my earlier comments on Dick.
