Waking Life is super ambitious in its decision to tackle philosophy in the form of experimental, raw animation. Although the thought exercises ultimately appear uneven, the style department ensures a memorable, atmospheric experience nonetheless.
From contemplations on time and space, to the mystery of language, and eventually to a questionable Alex Jones cameo, Waking Life is all-compassing with its coverings of multiple thought-provoking topics, all wrapped around in a young man's meandering lucid dreams. It's almost entirely dialogue-driven, with the protagonist always at the receiving end listening to intellectual outputs from various individuals. It's a highly risky decision that eventually pays off, and some segments are brilliant enough to even pass for a Godard or Resnais.
I wouldn't go as far as to say I've enjoyed or even grasped every single monologue presented here, but the ones I've appreciated and the unique style on display are already worthwhile. Recommended.
