Darkly Intriguing

I’ve never read any of Philip K. Dick’s books, nor for that matter found any of the film adaptations of his work particularly good, with the exception of Spielberg’s ‘Minority Report‘.

However, I’m excited about the upcoming ‘A Scanner Darkly‘. There is a fine cast including Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Woody Harrelson. And at the helm is Richard Linklater, who always does interesting work. He is using the same real life animation effects used in his previous ‘Waking Life‘. More about the process of ‘interpolated rotoscoping’ here.

    You didn’t like Blade Runner (and the book “Do androids dream of electric sheep”)? :|

    I also recommend the book “Now wait for last year”.
    Looking forward to this film, though.

    BISI, I never read the book and I never really took to Blade Runner, even though many regard it as one of the best sci-fi films ever.

    Vrta, thanks for the recommendation. I’ll try and get my hands on a copy of that book.
