still tripping over “a scanner darkly”
everyone go see “a scanner darkly” now!!
this movie was such a trip, here’s a screen shot of Winona Ryder’s (hottie!) character Donna:
i can’t really describe the style: it’s like half live action and half animation. it’s called interpolated rotoscoping. very cool. but even cooler is just the tone of the movie. it’s about drug addiction and the price you pay for it. even though the theme lends itself to loads of hardcore pretentious self actualization and pseudo philosophical ramblings about life, it doesn’t. it is what it is and the movie holds the characters responsible for their decisions. you don’t even feel sorry for the guy at the end.
here is the movie’s super cool website. sometimes i think marketers in the movie business have more fun than the agency people.
