A Scanner Darkly...

... anybody else looking forward to it??? I had read about the art style somewhere a while back (the entire movie was filmed normally, but then every frame was traced and recolored by hand, to give a look that blurs the line between animation and live action) but I completely forgot about it until a buddy showed me the trailer the other day.

Frankly, I have some doubts about the story and the casting of Keanu Reaves ( ), but it looks like it has potential to be a pretty cool way to spend a rainy afternoon. If they do a good enough job with the unique visual style, I can overlook a weak story. Sin City was that way for me... it was enough fun just to watch that movie that I found myself not really caring that the story seemed to be an afterthought.

Re: A Scanner Darkly...

its like a whole movie based off those chuck scwab commericals. Personally the animation/liveaction thing is to weird for me. Id rather just read the book
