The interpolated rotoscoping technique by which animation is superimposed over live action, is put to innovative use in this adaptation of dark anti-authority fantasy from sci-fi author Philip K Dick. Linklater's creative use of animation fashions Dick's hallucinatory notions into a beautifully realised study of urban paranoia.
