In a dystopian near future, a powerful new hallucinogenic drug called Substance D floods the market and spreads across the country like wildfire. Enter Bob Arctor (Keanu Reeves), an undercover agent who is tasked with infiltrating the drug’s supply chain. Adapted by Richard Linklater from Philip K. Dick’s loosely autobiographical sci-fi classic, A Scanner Darkly is a heady, thought-provoking and strangely beautiful exploration the effects of drugs and politics in an unstable world. Shot digitally and animated using an interpolated rotoscope process, the film immerses viewers in uncanny, dream world that feels like a graphic novel come to life. Featuring mesmerizing supporting turns from Robert Downey Jr., Winona Ryder and Woody Harrelson, A Scanner Darkly is one of Linklater’s most ambitious and visionary works, and it deserves to be experienced on the big screen.
