Waking Life

February 12, 7:15 PM

Presented in 35mm!

“The film’s protagonist, played by Wiley Wiggins from director Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused, sleepwalks around—sometimes he appears to float—asking essential questions about existence, identity, the nature of the universe and whether it’s a big, stupid risk to make a plotless movie about dreams. That the Texas-based Linklater . . . chose to express his ideas through animation shows he has guts. That he pulls off the innovative feat with hypnotic assurance is nothing short of amazing. This isn’t your dad’s animation, or even Disney’s. Having first shot the film digitally with live actors . . . , Linklater and art director Bob Sabiston asked 31 artists to computer-paint over that footage in their own distinct styles, assigning different characters and vignettes to each artist. The result is a magic-carpet ride the likes of which has not been seen since the head-tripping days of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Yellow Submarine.”—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
