A Scanner Darkly is a powerful dystopic film set in the terrifying near future-- a world controlled by high-tech surveillance and ruled by a liberty-destroying police state. Director Richard Linklater picks up where he left off with his ground-breaking Waking Life-- its rotoscoped look has now advanced exponentially into a startling visual element which only supports the themes of this new film. A Scanner Darkly is a heavily researched, amazingly conceived blend of Phillip K. Dick's acclaimed novel and the frightening real technology emerging in our threatened world. The film stars Keanu Reeves, Robert Downy, Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and features Alex Jones himself-- still bullhorning the truth in the future nightmare world. The Warner Brothers film is currently slated for release on July 7, 2006. This movie brilliantly exposes the fraud of the drug war and how governments and power interests engender chaos in order to maintain their stranglehold on the human population. Set in suburban Orange County California in the near future, undercover cop Keanu Reeves is ordered to start spying on his friends. A leviathan corporation, New Path, controls a drug named substance D, which causes its users to experience paranoid delusions and fantasies and eventually turns them into zombies. An iron fist police state, a multi-tentacle surveillance grid and the abolition of freedom of speech protects the truth behind Substance D, a reality the characters seek to quantify in the midst of their hallucinogenic haze. Society is managed similar to the tyranny of Communist China, where protesters are simply grabbed off the street and disappeared, as encapsulated by Alex Jones' role. The final unveiling of the scope of how New Path exploits the addiction of Substance D users for its own purposes will leave the viewer reeling from a volcanic blast of contemporary social commentary. If you enjoyed the rotoscoping effects seen on Waking Life then prepare yourself to be blown away by the visual appeal of this masterpiece. Every single frame is a work of art. The creators have managed to produce a graphic novel come to life, without losing one iota of the facial characteristics and body language encountered through standard cinematography. The film is a multi-layered waterfall of refreshing ideas and concepts. Running parallel is a strong and consistent element of humor throughout. A Scanner Darkly represents the latest example of a refreshing and burgeoning trend in Hollywood that seeks to enlighten the viewer into recognizing the real world prison barriers being erected around society today. The contribution A Scanner Darkly will make to the alternative truth movement cannot be understated. For those who believe in the possibility of the 100th monkey syndrome and how the collective unconsciousness can be changed through popular culture, Scanner stands out as a watershed moment in the desire to lift the human spirit and create a better world not just through deeds but the very act of thought and understanding alone. A Scanner Darkly is a ripple in the fabric of human awakening and its impact will send shockwaves through the New World Order architects and make them fully understand that a growing majority are becoming aware of their machinations and plans. This isn't airy fairy nebulous wishful thinking, it is historically visible that revolutions in the way we perceive the world around us and thus change it occur simultaneously and as a result of positive viral injections, whether they come from science, religion, technology, maverick individuals or popular culture. Film is still the zeitgeist of the human psyche. A Scanner Darkly is a prescient warning of the near-term world that awaits us all unless we stand in the way of those who would seek to crush the human soul and shackle an infinite ball and chain around our feet.
