Following my review of Robots Will Steal Your Job, But That’s OK, I’ve just finished watching a film called Waking Life, directed by Richard Linklater.
This might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved this film for its originality if nothing else. For me, Waking Life is one of those art forms that reminds you that you can like something and not really know why.
There isn’t really a story to anchor to here, the protagonist is seemingly trapped in a maze of dreams, and experiences a series of conversations discussing the meaning of life, some of which are intriguing and insightful, whilst others come across like they’re purposefully nonsense.
The film is shot like a documentary but has been converted in post to appear caricatured on a cartoon landscape.
Anyway it’s one of the more interesting films I’ve watched in recent months, so check it out if you haven’t seen it already. Likewise, let me know if there are any thought provoking films you’d recommend.
