Everything Wrong With A Scanner Darkly in 15 Minutes or Less

75 000 Көрүүлөр 221 миӊ.

A Scanner Darkly is one of Richard Linklater's two rotoscoped films. Some people love it. It's pretty weird, though. Oh, and it has sins and stuff.

Jeremy's book: cinemasins.com/original-sin

Next week: horror sequel sins and late '90s rom-com sins.

Remember, no movie is without sin. Which movie's sins should we count next?

    Remaking this without rotoscope having it live action and changing the script, I reckon it would be a hit. The cinematography is pretty good

    I love this movie. If you've read the book it's actually a pretty great interpretation considering how difficult it is to emulate the book. Also, what is the point of this video? These are just pop culture jokes over an accomplished movie. I don't understand

    It's so cold in the D. I actually barely remember this movie. But I remember that it took me 2 or 3 attempts to get into it more than half an hour. It really is full of dialog. But I also remember that I thought it was good. Kinda. Although I don't remember anything about it at all, least the ending.

    Honestly, it seems that, apart from the short runtime that didn't fully explore the book, they really captured the essence of what is basically the story of Phillip K Dick's paranoid brain.

    It's hard to objectively state this, but I'll try. This movie is not about the plot... it is about different types of mental illness, either brought on or exacerbated by the use of drugs. The idea is that through our altered perceptions we view the world individually and that a certain break occurs when trying coalesce the narrative within a more macro Avenue. The addictive nature of substance D is Shown with so many symptoms because it illustrates the odd intake of reality based events subjectively by anybody who is involved with it. Fundamental linguistic interpretation alters the minds ability to perceive, religious and political upbringings alter the narrative that is interpreted... in essence each personal experience is altering our abilities, positively and negatively, to interpret reality. Each of us is prejudiced based upon our individualistic interpretation of the world as we see it, some of us more soberly, some more deranged. I love this movie for how much it leans into the subjective territory of the mind, and the brutal honesty it presents when exploring interpretation of events as they unfold. It (the plot) is not as important to the narrative as is the interpretation of said narrative.

    Doing drugs in broad daylight on the side of the highway is a sin? There's literally a video of a grandma in australia ripping a Powerade and garden hose bong sitting at a bus stop on a main street. Pretty standard for Queensland, tbh. I was driving past the Maroochydore police station and saw a dude snorting lines in the parking lot, guess he made bail and they forgot to check everywhere for another stash. Moral of the story, welcome to Australia's red state.

Sorry I'm off subject and it is possible that I'm late to this party and someone else has already pointed this out, but are you aware of a dumpster blaze of a film named "HOTEL OF THE DAMNED"? There's a very distracting audio anomaly in the score that if he interested in getting your thoughts about it. I can't exactly explain it, but it should be obvious as soon as you hear it.

    Seriously though, if you watch Destination Wedding with the mindset that it's John Wick meeting his wife...then it's actually a pretty hilarious movie. Especially seeing how Keanu was clearly still in Wick mode and a lot of what comes out of his mouth is PURE John Wick. Particularly during the wild puma scene and the backstory about his relationship between him and his dad.
