There have been numerous adaptations of the late Philip K. Dick's science-fiction novels. Now, at last, his most personal book, 1977's «A Scanner Darkly», has been brought to the screen with great fidelity and considerable style by one of America's most singular independent film-makers, Richard Linklater. Linklater's film announces itself as being set seven years in the future, when there is in progress a determined campaign against the manufacture, distribution and use of the deadly substance «D». This paranoia-inducing drug creates an incurable addiction. What Dick and Linklater have created is a paranoid, anomic world where fugitives from a consumer society create their own hell of addiction while a corrupt, fascistic state seeks to control and exploit conformists and dissidents alike. The juddering rotoscope images will drive many viewers around the bend - where they'll meet up with the film's characters again. (Philip French)
