A Scanner Darkly

A Scanner Darkly

Directed by Richard Linklater • 2006 • United States
Starring Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Woody Harrelson

In a not-too-distant future where America has lost its “war” on drugs, Fred (Keanu Reeves), an undercover cop, is one of many people hooked on the popular drug Substance D, which causes its users to develop split personalities. Fred is obsessed with taking down Bob, a notorious drug dealer—unaware that Bob is actually his own alternate personality. Filmed in live-action and then animated using the same groundbreaking process he employed in WAKING LIFE, Richard Linklater’s innovative adaptation of the novel by legendary sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick is a journey into the absurd, a place where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode, and where no one can be trusted—not even oneself.
