A Scanner Darkly

a scanner darkly
Philip K. Dick's classic, A Scanner Darkly is being made into a movie that will be released later this year. Several movies based off his books/short stories have been made, the most recent of which include Paycheck and Minority Report.
The film stars Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, and Robert Downy Jr., but in a very loose sense. It is almost animated. Check out this preview and you will see what I mean. Apparently, the actors were hooked up to computers, much like Golem in LOTR, and their images were messed with in some program. It looks cool, but I do not know if I will be able to take the story as seriously as I would had it been filmed in a more traditional way.

Regardless of the movie's image, the story is pretty interesting. A cop, Keanu Reeves, is chasing a killer who he discovers to be himself. Kind of a Memento theme, but still captivating ...
