An old cliche plot, but a really awsome style, I wonder how they did this?

Tiny's right. It's rotoscoping:


Like a graphic novel come to life, A Scanner Darkly will utilize live action photography overlaid with an advanced animation process to create a haunting, highly stylized vision of the future. The technology was first employed in Linklater's 2001 film Waking Life and has evolved to produce even more impact and detail.

The first faithful adaptation of a Philip K Dick novel in a long time, unlike PayCheck and Imposter.

However, there have been some good ones: Bladerunner, Total Recall and my fave Minority Report.

... and even though it has Keanue Reeves in it, I might have to watch it.

my question is, I dont see any point in the rotoscoping.
oh man Total recall, yes that movie man, classic.
