A Scanner Darkly

Yesterday i watched "A Scanner Darkly" directed by Linklater, with a hand full of stars Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr. and Woody Harrelson.
The plot occurs in a not-so-far away future where the battle against drugs is lost, the 20 % of the population is addicted to the "Substance D".
Fred (Reeves) is a undercover cop, he has to deal with his double identity and with his addiction to the "D".

This film has the characteristic of begin rotoscoped, giving life in a reality with high tech surveillance and drug induced illusions.
The first scene is the perfect example of this, when one of the characters is in the middle of a ´delirium tremens´ attack.

Well i hope you enjoy this movie, like i did.
