...A Scanner Darkly (2006)

A Scanner Darkly is a gimmick movie whose gimmick (film it digitally and animate the footage) wears thin quickly. After the gimmick, there is faux film noir with our lead actors attempting to act using monotone voices, and proselytizing about drug use. It might have been more interesting without the animation but, unless a viewer's cut is released on DVD, we'll never know.
