My name is Cédric Bozzi and this is my blog. Mostly, it’s an aggregate of my tweets and Instagram posts, but once in a while you may yet see an actual article here.
IGN is streaming the first two reels of A Scanner Darkly. That’s a great promotional idea, such as you’d like to see more often, and it’s unlikely to happen again anytime soon: seems like most bloggers I’ve read had the same reaction as me, not being in a particular hurry to see what happens next — even though I was definitely intent on going to see it when it was released in France. The story, at least so far, isn’t too riveting, and the animation is ugly and annoying (which might seem unlikely considering the technique they used, but I’ve generally found rotoscoping animation to look more awkward than realistic in the end, and that’s definitely the case here).
In the nitpicking department: the visual representation of the scramble suit doesn’t match the dialogue at all. Which dialogue makes some sense and is probably lifted straight from the Philip K. Dick, whereas the visual are way out there. That’s not starting off too well.
