A Scanner Darkly: Is it worth seeing?
A Scanner Darkly is still in limited release. It is coming to my town this weekend. It looks really interesting to me. That being said, has anyone seen it and is it worth seeing?

1. One of my all-time favorite P. K. Dick books
and the trailer appears to make it look like the flick follows the original story pretty closely. I for one intend to see it. I don't think you'd regret it if you went. Just IMHO.

4. I loved "A Waking Life" -- another Linklater film
I can't remember name of the animation process they use but it's pretty amazing.

6. Rotoscoping
and they vastly improved it this time around.

SD is great. I love every Linklater movie except the "Before" movies.
