    I often find myself looking at my watch during films which are proving to be lengthy and boring. People who have seen Waking Life will understand the totally different reasons for which I found myself glancing down at the LED numbers on my wrist during the film. Waking Life is an entirely lucid experience, and one that captures not just the freedom and flow, but the unusual panic and discomfort of dreaming. I almost lost track of where I was…

    An animated film...no...a philosophical and spiritual nostalgia brought to you by Richard Linklater. A film about nothing, and everything at the same time. An acid trip through the subconscious. A film that is capable of questioning everything and providing all the answers simultaneously. This is one of those things that cannot possibly be described through words on a computer screen and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    This is, however, a piece of work that I can quote for decades…

    Has any movie about philosophy ever been as much fun as Waking Life? It’d been some years since I saw it, and it held up well enough that I can even shrug off the cameo by Alex Jones (perhaps Wiley Wiggins is playing one of the proverbial “sheeple” on a journey of awakening?). If the afterlife is like this movie, I’d be fine with it. Also, I looked up the dream movie that Soderbergh mentions in his scene, the one that Billy Wilder made fun of Louis Malle for making, and it was Black Moon, one of my all-time favorites, so shut up, Billy Wilder.

    Saw this in theaters, still love the designs and the intellectual presentations. Such a mind-blowing experience.

    Some of the subjects are much more interesting than others, but overall this was a very enjoyable, thought-provoking, and unique film. You can't fault Linklater for coasting, that's for sure.

    Linklater with his usual philosophical and theosophical arbitrariness.
    Incredibly ingenius though.

    "Waking life" (Linklater, 2001) es un curioso ensayo semi monologal y trascendentalista, con una pizca de road movie onírico.

    Lo más interesante es el formato visual, pues Linklater filma a los actores en video digital y usa ese metraje como base para agregar una capa de animación creada por decenas de artistas.

    La capa animada a veces subsume por completo a la filmada, cuando el discurso vuela por la espesura filosófica; en otros momentos es a la inversa, cuando se…

    Filmed on digital video but animated over top by 32 different artists, "Waking Life" pulsates and shimmers with an urgent vibrancy. It’s a sight to behold. If you engage with the film, the conversations can spark ideas of your own. It’s art and can be enjoyed on multiple levels; simply as entertainment with great humor and a vibrant visual aesthetic, or you can dive right into the heady philosophical musings discussed by the people in the film or both at…
