latest linklater

is called A Scanner's Darkly.

This comes from the maker of beautifull "waking life".
The reasons i really admire linklater are so many; amongst them is his coherence without being boring as a director, his relation with the actors that write lines dialogues of their own and such a beautifull example is before sunset-sunrise (for the reality human normal feeling that the films have)

This one is an adaptation of P.K.Dick' novel's ( the writer for total recall, blade runner and minority report ) and author of UBIK.


"PK Dick wrote this novel as a way of telling the story of how he and his friends in the early '70s damaged and destroyed themselves with drugs. He tells this story within the framework of a surreal science fiction thriller, but many of the scenes are straight from his own experiences with the unpleasant consequences of people using drugs and disintegrating mentally."

and here are the first 24 minutes of it.
