Posted Jul 14, 2007

" ‐ Murphy's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 14, 2007
C- 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) " a trippy movie that doesn't make it easy for the audience to follow. The story is complex and confusing and theanimation keeps the viewer from entering the tale emotionally or intellectually. " ‐ Murphy's Movie Reviews
