Confusing

I haven't read the book in ages, but I recall it being sort of confusing. And that the characters swore a lot. What was this about then? Was it the one where the guy starts chasing himself after taking a Death drug or something?

Re: Confusing

Just saw the trailer for this on the Constantine DVD. If the movie is done the way it is in the trailer, animation-style, it would a different way to watch movie. Don't know anything about the story though. Interesting cast lineup, of Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Woody Harrelson, etc

Re: Confusing

Very strange line up, my interest is piqued by that alone.

I saw the trailer quite a few months ago on apple's trailer-site. Seemed pretty neat. I am looking forward for this movie to come out.

Re: Confusing

Yeah, the rotoscope animation looks groovy. And appropiate, since it was a drug novel and that style of animation would give it an even more trippier feel. Plus, I recall the book having those weird shape-shifting "scramble suits" thingies, which would look AWFUL with CGI. I wouldn't mind seeing more films designed like this - you wouldn't be able to tell which is reality and which is special effect because the entire thing looks like a special effect. In a good way, I mean.

Re: Confusing

So it's out now? Why isn't my localcinema showing it, then??

It's not as if it matters, though - I wouldn't be able to convince anyone to come see it with me if it were showing
