A Scanner Darkly Trailer
    #3856474 - 03/02/05 11:26 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)


Directed by
Richard Linklater

Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr.

The war on drugs is over, and America has lost. Even the police officers charged with combating the drug trade are not immune to its lures. Undercover cop Fred (Keanu Reeves) is just one of many agents hooked on the popular drug Substance D, which causes users to develop split personalities. Along with his superior officers, Fred sets in motion an elaborate scheme to ensnare notorious drug dealer Bob. But when Fred realizes that Bob is another one of his personalities, things start to get weird... very weird. Based on a short story by visionary author Philip K. Dick ('Minority Report') and directed by Richard Linklater ('Before Sunset,' 'Dazed & Confused'), 'A Scanner Darkly' uses groundbreaking animation and imaginative storytelling to paint a harrowing and gorgeous picture of a futuristic world in which nothing is as it seems.

Interesting. May have to check this out. :thumbup:

The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, they're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away, but if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth...


Yay for Pornography!

based on a novel by dick...

the cop is assigned to infiltrate a D-users' ring... and in order to infiltrate properly, he shows up to check in at the cop shop always wearing a "scramble suit" (so that his identitiy is concealed at work)... but when he is using D with his hipster pals, he can't wear the suit (obviously)... and his reports to HQ (in order to keep his cover from being blown) are equally objective about everyone of the users in his circle (including himself, as a user & potential supplier)... and the inevitable results of being a D user are madness & eventually death... but it is soooooo fine while you're doing it...

phil dick was not a well man, but his fiction is often top-notch storytelling... (& _a scanner darkly_ was very spooky reading for me way back in the 70s, friends... very spooky indeed...)

I just hope Keanu doesn't say "woah!" when he takes a lot of Substance D or his brain starts to split.

I am Ubik. Before the universe was, I am. I made the suns. I made the worlds. I created the lives and the places they inhabit; I move them here, I put them there. They go as I say, they do as I tell them. I am the word and my name is never spoken, the name which no one knows. I am called Ubik, but that is not my name. I am. I shall always be.
