A Scanner Darkly – This film sends chills down my spine every time I see it. The visual style is a work of art, overlaying vector graphics on film to create a realistic animation of iconic characters. The real reason this gem shines in my eyes is because of its use of uncanny valley. It holds a mirror up to society as it falls into a dystopian nightmare in the age of the war on terror. From hidden cameras to spy vans and scramble suits, this film is a trip.
