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


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.

very good, creative, expansion of SlackersReviewed byalfred hitchcockVote: 8/10

It is rare for a director to return to a film and improve it but Linklater does it here. Taking the general form of Slackers, he adds a metaphysical story line and coats it with extraordinary eye candy.

The rotoscoping really provides an acid trip experience of constantly shifting planes with backgrounds going one way and characters going the other.

The string quartet tango score also is an excellent use of music to reinforce the exotic aspects of the production.

The monologues are thought provoking and compelling. The story line examining dream/death connection is novel. Score points for originality of story, art direction and narrative line. Some quite funny parts (e.g. boat car, bar shoot out, etc.), some creepy parts (e.g. jailbird rant, second boat man meeting, etc.).

I have seen this several times and enjoyed it every time. Farily rare is the movie that can really stand up to multiple viewings. This is one.

Very refreshing. See it.

A mind expanding experience.Reviewed byoddi-3Vote: 7/10

I greatly enjoyed Waking Life, I was most impressed by the animation and the philosophical dialog that just kept hanging on the characters' every word. This movie is not for everyone, at least not for those who like their films 'light'. The fact is that Waking Life consists mostly of the main character discussing philosophical topics with various colorful characters. At some point it was difficult to remain concentrated to everything the characters say, for they were rambling quite discoursively, making the audience feel like they're attending a lecture. But the animation makes up for that, because the film has so much visual content that one could also watch it with out the dialog, just being immersed in the art.

I'm not an expert in philosophy, I've just taken one beginners class, although i am interested in the topic. In reply to complaints condemning the film pretentious or complaining that it's philosophical ideas are old or overused. I'd say that Waking Life, rather than trying to reinvent philosophical theories, tries to present these ideas in the form of a film the same way as Jostein Gaarder's book 'Sophie's World'. It could in that way function as a sort of 'window' into the world of philosophy, a first touch. I'd hesitate calling it a beginners guide to philosophy as the language is demanding, especially for non natives. But on my part, I feel having expanded my horizons, by experiencing Waking Life. This movie can be enjoyed on many levels, and also a whole spectrum of interpretations can be drawn from it, watch it and see what it makes you feel.
