What does a scanner see? Into the head? Into the heart? From the novel by Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner, Minority Report) comes A Scanner Darkly, brought to the screen by filmmaker Richard Linklater with an edgy graphic-novel look. The time: just beyond now. The place: suburbia. The story: a twisted, funny tale of people hooked on Substance D. And of a government that cheerfully destroys its citizens – their rights, their relationships – in order to save them. Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and Rory Cochrane play strung-out friends terrified of each other and of spies. Keanu Reeves plays a spy who’s also a friend…until his two personalities begin to split. Enjoy the paranoia. Nobody’s watching you. Really.
Wonderful performances, an excellent story, and a beautiful, warped vision. This is some good sci-fi.Published 1 day 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 11 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).
