A Scanner Darkly

A Scanner Darkly ★★½

Ehhh. Visually quite cool... and I'll always love Keanu and Winona, but overall... not very good.

Meanders around in a typical Linklater style for the most part, but nothing about the characters or conversation is interesting enough to hold it together. Or perhaps hearing junkies ramble about their conspiracy theories just hits kinda different in 2022? There's even an Alex Jones cameo. Gross.

Finishes on an interesting note, and the Philip K Dick's afterword changed my perception of the film, but by that point I had already checked out.
