    `What does a scanner see? Into the head? Into the heart?` From the novel by Philip K. Dick - the sci-fi legend whose works-to-film include `Blade Runner`, `Total Recall` and `Minority Report` - comes `A Scanner Darkly`, brought to the screen by filmmaker Richard Linklater with an edgy graphic-novel look.

    The time: just beyond now. The place: suburbia. The story: a twisted, funny tale of people hooked on Substance D. And of a government that cheerfully destroys its citizens - their rights, their relationships - in order to save them. Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and Rory Cochrane play strung-out friends terrified of each other and of spies, Keanu Reeves plays a spy who`s also one of the friends...until his two personalities begin to split. Enjoy the paranoia. Nobody`s watching you. Really.
