And Now For Something Completely Different

There is this new movie coming out that visually makes the original 1977 Sci-fi / Drug novel come to life. The book and movie both take place in the near future. The time has come. A Scanner Darkly comes out Friday here in Atlanta. It was shown to great acclaim at the Canne Film Festival. It is directed by Richard Linklater, the same guy who did School of Rock and who wrote and directed the cult classic Dazed and Confused. The film uses the technique of rotoscoping, live action is filmed then animated over. I think that this will lend itself perfectly to A Scanner Darkly and it looks to be amazing. If anyone wants to go, the movie will be premiering Friday, July 14th, here in Atlanta. It is playing at the Tara movie theater on the corner of Lavista and Cheshire Bridge at these times (2:00), (2:30), (4:30), (5:00), 7:15, 7:45, 9:45, 10.15. Whomever reads this blog, I invite you check this Indy film out.

Here is the website for the movie. Hopefully a review will follow.
