In a futuristic America where
the endless and futile war on drugs is one and the same with its war on terror,
Arctor is asked to spy on his friends then himself, which is the launching
point for a paranoid journey into the absurd.
The story is based on the
legendary science-fiction author Philip K. Dick’s own experiences, the film
follows the tragedy of drug use played out like a graphic novel with
live-action photography overlaid with animation.
The Warner Independent
Pictures film delivers a star-studded cast with Reeves, Robert Downey Jr.,
Woody Harrelson and Winona Ryder. The London Times calls
A Scanner Darkly
trippy and extremely funny.”
