A Scanner Darkly

A Scanner Darkly

Year: 2006
Genre: Sci-Fi/ Animation/ Thriller

This film basically covers the day-to-day activities of an LA narcotics cop who takes the very drug he’s trying to stop others from getting hooked on, and his loss of identity he experiences as a result.

I didn’t like this film. While the ‘graphic novel’ style was intriguing, it didn’t really do much to alleviate the confusing plot, nor the slow build up to what was actually turned out to be an interesting conclusion. I haven’t read the book of the same name [written by Phillip K Dick] but I think I would like to now, to see how the film compares or if the plot is explained fuller.

Also, after reading a great many comments on this film on IMDB.com, I would have to admit that maybe I don’t like this film as much as I could do, because I simply don’t ‘get’ the drug related undertones. Even so, I’d still give it just 1/5
