Wondering what she was on
This afternoon I saw Linklater's adaption of Philip K. Dick's novel A Scanner Darkly, also rotoscoped, a wild ride into the future of mind-altering drugs (written 30 years ago when Dick was in the throes of his own drug mania). Do see it, it's a fabulous movie. Now I need to see it again to try to catch up on some of the double-double plot twists. Again, rotoscoping was perfect for this crazy half-real, half-hallucination tale.
So the lights go on and I see that besides me, the only folks left in the theater is a couple about my age. He's explaining the rotoscoping technique to her, how it's made as an actual (digital) movie before being animated. Long pause, then she says, "I didn't realize it was animated."
