I’ve not read Philip K. Dick’s novel “A Scanner Darkly”, so I don’t know how it will translate to film, but the trailer does look intriguing. It’s the first clip I’ve seen from the film; up until now I’ve only seen screenshots. First thing that comes to my mind is Timothy Leary’s comment that virtual reality will be the ultimate drug (or something like that). Interesting how the film almost appears to be rendered with a cartoon shader. It almost fits inside Second Life (although machinima flicks look much better).
Anyway, go watch for yourself (Link). If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably a Philip K. Dick fan anyway.
