Richard Linklater, Directing 'Darkly'

Richard Linklater's new film, A Scanner Darkly, is based on the book by Philip K. Dick -- a haunting tale of drug addiction, paranoia and surveillance set in the America of the near future. Live-action footage is overlaid with an animation technique first used in Linklater's 2001 film Waking Life. The self-taught director is known for films such as Slacker, Dazed & Confused and The School of Rock.
