Such a great film.Think everyone needs to watch it.
as proven by science, having a good narrative, and improved rotorscoping
It did improve but i think for the dreamscape in waking life it worked very well, worked for the general theme.It is hard to compare the two films because they are completely different.Waking Life almost comes across as a documentation of great minds and philosophers rather than a story about a boy struggling with the definition of reality in light of dreaming.The flow of the film is unlike any other film i have ever seen.
I can't say why at the moment.
It feels a bit like a first-year philosophy seminar at points, though, and it didn't burn itself onto my mind like numerous bits of ASD. There's a glorious, loose freedom to it, and it seems like it MIGHT do anything, but it doesn't quite - it's just a bit too calculated and controlled.
ASD is one of my favourite modern movies, a genuine technical and emotional tour de force, and by many accounts one of the best, most faithful sci-fi adaptations ever achieved. It's a movie whose importance is underestimated, IMO - you barely hear about it these days!
And also, which other film reaches an emotional climax with a list of names scrolling up the screen at the end?
