A Scanner Darkly is set in suburban Orange County, California in a future where America has lost the war on drugs. When one reluctant undercover cop is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode. It is a cautionary tale of drug use based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences.
MTV Overdrive has recently put up a boatload of new clips for A Scanner Darkly that feature Richard Linklater as he describes the film and the animation process behind it; called interpolated rotoscoping. Amongst some of the dialogue we are given new sequences from the film to watch. Hope you have some time, because there are a ton of them.
