A Scanner Darkly

Last night I was unusually tired, so I went home rather early and watched a movie. Unfortunately, I chose a film that was quite demanding: A Scanner Darkly (imdb) by Richard Linklater based on a novel by Philip K. Dick. It is an extraordinary movie, first and foremost due to the rotoscope technique. The film contains very many dialogues, so I had to concentrate very much and almost gave up. I liked the scrambling suit which creates a constantly changing simulacron of the person who is wearing it. The film is a little less experimental than Waking Life, but slightly funnier. I think I have to see more Linklater films in the near future. Before Sunrise and Before Sunset sound interesting. Suggestions?
