"A Scanner Darkly" is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It has drug use, adult language and animated bare breasts.

“…animated bare breasts”—now that’s funny! (This is from the NY Times review I mention below)

Bonnie and I went to see A Scanner Darkly’s midnight showing last night at the Regal Theatres across from the UCI campus. The movie was great—not a warm fuzzy, this movie, or a tear-jerker, even, just an “oh shit that could’ve been me” kinda thing. And truthfully, which baby-boomer hasn’t tried at least some type of “recreational” drug? Although I’d read the usual blah-blah-blah on the performances of certain actors, there were quite a few good (and intelligently written) reviews on the film… NY Times’ can be read here. It grows tiresome to always read comments from the critics; refreshing when folks admit that the roles fit the actors to a T.

You know what else is funny? I got pulled over by a cop on my way home after the movie for a broken tail-light and an expired registration. He was nice and just told me to fix it… after inquiring where I was coming from and then commenting “that looks like a strange movie…” It would’ve been Freck’s worst nightmare come to life…

    Actually, animated bare breasts are preferrable to inanimate ones.

    I have heard interesting things about the film, but after watching a clip of it recently I thought the visual sense would be off-putting after a bit.

    Glad to hear a personal recommendation for it.

    I am a big Robert Downey fan, too.
