Set in a not-too-distant future where America has lost its "war" on drugs, Fred, an undercover cop, is one of many people hooked on the popular drug, Substance D, which causes its users to develop split personalities. Fred is obsessed with taking down Bob, a notorious drug dealer, but due to his Substance D addiction, he does not know that he is also Bob. Based on a classic novel by Philip K. Dick. Starring Keanu Reeves ("Constantine," "The Matrix" trilogy), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Winona Ryder ("Girl, Interupted," "Mr. Deeds"), Academy Award and Emmy-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Robert Downey Jr. ("Good Night, And Good Luck" "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang"), and Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee and Emmy-winner Woody Harrelson ("North Country," "The People vs. Larry Flynt"). Directed by Academy Award-nominee Richard Linklater ("Before Sunset," "Dazed and Confused"). Filmed in live-action, and then animated using the same critically acclaimed process that Linklater used in his previous film, "Waking Life."
Wonderful performances, an excellent story, and a beautiful, warped vision. This is some good sci-fi.Published 2 days ago by Brian Maynard
My rating for A Scanner Darkly is probably higher than most. I can easily see it being less for other viewers since the film does not really come together in many respects. Read morePublished 12 days ago by rbrogan3

I rented this based on a Superstars program. It was done in, not sure what you call it, but more of an animated form with actors voices. Read morePublished 14 days ago by RJP
Can't recommend this movie enough. Visually engrossing from the word go, it's hard to look away while it's on. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Heath

|Difference between this one and the first Blu-Ray release||
Actually one of the special features has been dropped from the second (recent) release: One Summer in Austin: The Story of Filming A Scanner Darkly (a 26-minute documentary on the making of the movie, which also featured Philip K. Dick archival interviews, as well as interviews with cast and crew).
