A Scanner Darkly (movie)
The original novel was written by Philip K. Dick. The movie was directed by Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, School of Rock). This is a plain adaptation of the novel without any alteration of the original plot. Unfortunately the story included lots of dull conversations among characters (they are drug abusers), which made audiences wanna sleep... It was tolerable in the form of texts but quite annoying while being faithfully transformed into scenes. However, the visual effect was indeed remarkable!
