    'Waking Life' is indeed a transcendental dream, the kind of one to go back to, again and again!

    A low-budget animation masterpiece and an overwhelming surreal pleasure of a movie from Richard Linklater, which is more like a philosophical buffet that explores human subconsciousness with endless, deep-rooted commentaries that makes us too a part of an extra-ordinary journey into the dreaming state of one man! heart emoticon

    P.S. - You'll either love it, or you'll hate it. And yeah, the animation is bizarre and it's completely dialogue-driven like most of Linklater's recognized movies. (Before Trilogy and Boyhood).

    Does feel too pretentious making you asleep just like the main character.

    Brilliant, sure... But I found this to be a physical chore to get through and a bit irritating on my eyes.

    In case you want to experience a philosophy trip.

    I remember seeing this movie 8 years ago(maybe more), and at the time I was blown away by it just like this time.

    The fast pass, and the huge amount of information dump at you, it is mind blowing, I will watch it again in the near future.

    It is this strange story about life, with the recurring dreams theme, where all the character dump their views on life, on the…

    Kim Krizan: Creation seems to come out of imperfection. It seems to come out of a striving and a frustration and this is where I think language came from. I mean, it came from our desire to transcend our isolation and have some sort of connection with one another. And it had to be easy when it was just simple survival. Like you know, "water." We…

    Verwirrende und stückhafte Reise durch Philosophie und Film, erzählt in einem ebenso gezeichneten, oft wechselnden Rotoskopie-Zeichenstil. Offenes Ende, offene Fragen, aber ein erfüllendes Gefühl.

    Podrá discutirse lo de que mejore o no con el tiempo, pero lo que es irrebatible son los nuevos matices que adquiere tras cada visionado. Del mismo modo que puedo comprender a los que la tengan tirria tanto por sus excesos narrativos como por la pedantería que destila alguna que otra escena, espero de ellos el mismo grado de comprensión hacia aquellos que disfrutamos con cada minuto de su metraje. He perdido ya la cuenta del número de veces que…

    For the first 10-15 minutes of this movie I was feeling pretty sick. I was not prepared for the visual style which is animated but also has an uncanny valley type feel about it. I dunno, but it was tripping me out. I eventually got into it though and found it beautiful by the end.

    Richard Linklater is one audacious and varied director. The outline of this is similar to his first film Slacker however all of the conversations in…
