About the Movie

Set in a not-too-distant future where America has lost its "war" on drugs, Fred, an undercover cop, is one of many people hooked on the popular drug, Substance D, which causes its users to develop split personalities. Fred is obsessed with taking down Bob, a notorious drug dealer, but due to his Substance D addiction, he does not know that he is also Bob. Based on a classic novel by Philip K. Dick. Starring Keanu Reeves ("Constantine," "The Matrix" trilogy), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Winona Ryder ("Girl, Interupted," "Mr. Deeds"), Academy Award and Emmy-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Robert Downey Jr. ("Good Night, And Good Luck" "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang"), and Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee and Emmy-winner Woody Harrelson ("North Country," "The People vs. Larry Flynt"). Directed by Academy Award-nominee Richard Linklater ("Before Sunset," "Dazed and Confused"). Filmed in live-action, and then animated using the same critically acclaimed process that Linklater used in his previous film, "Waking Life."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Linklater emerges once again as the Austin auteur par excellence, even if A Scanner Darkly is set in a ratty precinct of Orange County. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Apr 25, 2007

Fresh: The first film to capture the author's transience and his art. – Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The movie doesn't so much involve you in a story as it invades your mind, creating a world ruled by anxiety and suspicion. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The artiness gets in the way of thrilling plot twists; we're still trying to sort out images when we should be sorting out facts. – Michael Booth, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010
