A Scanner Darkly
Filmfest 2006

In the near future in suburban Orange County, California. America’s endless and futile war on drugs has become one and the same with its war on terror. Reluctant undercover cop Bob Arctor follows orders to start spying on his friends. When he is directed to step up the surveillance on himself, he is launched on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode... – The film plays like a graphic novel come to life with live-action photography overlaid with an advanced animation process – a method known as interpolated rotoscoping – to create a haunting version of America, seven years from now.
