I went to see "A Scanner Darkly" this evening.

I went to see "A Scanner Darkly" this evening, and blow me if that wasn't a depressing film. It's about a group of drug users in California and their increasing paranoia as they get increasingly dependent on the drugs they're using.

In the film I'm wisely informed that they "cartoonified" live action and that's part of the reason why I went to see the film. It was clever, but I have to admit it irritated me after a while (especially a uniform they used to hide the identity of policemen). Combining this with a so-so ending to the film and the fact I get irritated with anyone using more than alcohol and a little weed and it probably isn't surprising that I'm feeling a little bit blah-ish toward the film.
