A Scanner Darkly

In FilmMaker, Scott Macauley has written a spirited preview/interview of Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly, which he says is the first faithful film based on a Philip K. Dick novel. I hope so, because the early trailer I saw had an overly-rotoscoped look that I didn't simply hate, I detested. Macauley makes me want to see the movie anyway.

I also found the rotoscoped animation reeeeally offputting. The stills certainly look better than what I've seen in motion. But, I've enjoyed Linklater's films, and hearing that this film is actually faithful to a PKD novel is promising.
