The Synopsis for Waking Life (2001) 1080p

Dreams. What are they? An escape from reality or reality itself? Waking Life follows the dream(s) of one man and his attempt to find and discern the absolute difference between waking life and the dreamworld. While trying to figure out a way to wake up, he runs into many people on his way; some of which offer one sentence asides on life, others delving deeply into existential questions and life's mysteries. We become the main character. It becomes our dream and our questions being asked and answered. Can we control our dreams? What are they telling us about life? About death? About ourselves and where we come from and where we are going? The film does not answer all these for us. Instead, it inspires us to ask the questions and find the answers ourselves.

The Reviews for Waking Life (2001) 1080p


A film for passionate thinkers.Reviewed bySpamletVote: 10/10

This is one of the most thought provoking films I've ever seen. It's also visually stunning and perfectly acted: every single one of these people seem to be just giving their own opinions as if you were overhearing/having a meaningful conversation with them.

We can chalk this up to the genius of Linklater who over the years has shown not only the pretentiously humorous coffee house crowd cliches but also the searching, often deeply insightful side of our generation that the media overlooked when we were dubbed slackers. In films he has written: "Slacker" and "Before Sunrise" and in his films of stage plays Bogosian's brilliant, Chekhovian "SubUrbia" and the faintly melodramatic "Tape", Linklater has always been fascinated with the question of what we should doing with our lives. Our responsibility is to contribute something lasting and meaningful to our society. But what exactly is that? Where and when should I do it? Who with? How do I know if I've really found it? Why is it so important again, anyway?

I saw this movie for the first time late last night and 5 minutes before it started I had fallen asleep and was hoping I'd be able to make it all the way through the film. From the first frame I was riveted and completely awake and remained so even after it was over; contemplating all the myriad viewpoints the film had thrown at me.

This movie is so exciting and bursting with ideas that I'm going to buy the DVD as soon as I possibly can and watch it over and over trying to absorb it all.

See this film. It will remind you of how thrilling it is to be an active thinking, feeling member of the human race.

It IS pseudo-intellectual garbageReviewed bypeskina52Vote: 1/10

You want to watch a film dealing with the workings of the mind and man, watch Apocalypse Now, Seventh Seal, any Hitchcock movie, and list goes on and on. Hell, even Monty Python's The Meaning of Life will do.

You want to watch a film with halfway decent animation that's just as intelligent if not more so, watch South Park (and yes I'm serious about this).

If you want to watch a film with great dialogue, watch A Man for All Seasons.

Basically, you'd be better off watching all of those movies than wasting your time on this piece of crap.

I don't need to pay $7 to sit in a theatre or $3 to rent a movie filled with a bunch of pretentious morons sitting around in wobbly animation babbling on about life and philosophy. If I want to explore the inner workings of the mind and the concept of dreams, I'd much rather read something by Sartre or Kierkegaard or any other psychologist or philosopher rather than watching Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy spew it back to me on screen.

This movie spoon feeds philosophy to those who are too lazy to read the actual works of the authors cited. Although an ambitious idea (and I do find the technique of animation over live film intriguing, even if it doesn't work), it fails miserably because it does indeed come off as pseudo-intellectual, pretentious garbage, and that's exactly what it is. Those people who insist that people like me cannot enjoy a film like this because I would prefer nudity and violence are arrogant pseudo-intellectuals themselves who are somehow convinced that if they make themselves more miserable by watching films like this, they'll become more intelligent. Sorry people. It doesn't work that way. While I appreciate the occasional violent nudie romp, I also have the ability to appreciate quality films and sadly, Waking Life is not one of them.

I cannot believe some of the criticism's of this film...Reviewed byjonturtonVote: 10/10

For the open minded, intellectually persuaded film fan, Waking Life is 120 minutes of unabated pleasure. It is undoubtedly one of the most original and innovative films you will ever see and will definitely stimulate your mind and senses.

The film documents a series of lucid interactions of its lead character, Wiley Wiggins, as he meets an assortment of colourful and diverse persons. The basic premise is that Wiley doesn't know if he's awake, dreaming or in fact dead when he is meeting these people. Every facet of the film making process here is utilised to accentuate the confused state of the boy as he explores a world that may or may not be reality; it is expertly achieved. Lets start with the visuals. Waking life used pioneering robo(something?) technology to express the peculiar sensory disposition of its lead character. The technique involves real actors performing on camera and then for the finished product to be animated in post production. The result is a startling, other worldy and sometimes eerie ambiance. After ten minutes or so you will wonder if you are in fact experiencing a dream yourself.

The wonderful animation works in conjunction with the meandering, non linear but exceedingly entertaining script, to give the viewer a real sense of queerness, and helps illuminate the fascinating insights of the characters Wiley meets. The animation also effectively keeps the viewer aware that he/she is watching something that is not occurring in the conscious world. The script itself is thought provoking and utterly stimulating, and gets the viewer, if he or she is a creative and imaginative individual, to immerse him/herself with the subject matter at hand and ask themselves the big questions of what life is all about, as the lead character does.

Reading through some of the negative reviews on this website, I felt like flushing my head down the toilet. You cannot criticise a film for not doing something it never set out to do. Users on here have suggested that the film has no real narrative and that the characters are fleeting and inaccessible. Well duh? The film is about a dream, if any subject can allow for the abstract to flourish, it is subconsciousness. The film doesn't want to be a novel, it doesn't require a start middle and an end because it is merely an abstract exploration of social and cultural concepts. It doesn't want to explain the world to you and sew up the meaning of life, it just wants to provide a brief, vivid reflection of the elusive and tumultuous nature of ife. The characters are not there to be loved or hated or envied, they are there to represent the variety of beliefs and perspectives and opinions that mankind in all its diversity holds. The non linear essence of the film reflects the non linearity of life.

Those of you who say this is not a film, I say you are an idiot. Who are you to say what constitutes art? A film doesn't need to pander to narratology to be good; its that sort of thinking which has led to the perpetuation of rubbish that we see made year upon year in the film industry. There should be no rules. Waking Life will give any forward thinking individual a fine film experience; it expertly achieves what Richard Linklater set out to do, which was to create a visually outstanding, mind expanding film which deals with social and cultural theory.

Detractors of this film should drop out of that film studies class they have been attending because evidently it is turning you into a pretentious film prima donna.
