A great movie which combined amination with real life. In "Waking Life," we walked though a dreamlike existance that boarders between reality and fantasy.
The film centered on Wiley Wiggins who keeps walking up in one dreamlike sequence after another. He is asking, "Are we sleepwalking though our walking state or wake walking though our dreams?" Director Richard Linklater takes us this dreamlike world with a help of over two dozens animators and a script, (also written by Linklater) to be one of the year's best written scripts. We meet characters that are both weird and interesting.
"Waking Life" is a expermental movie that deserves to nominated for the first ever Best Animation film at the Academy Awards. It's one of the best movies of the year, if not the best film of the year.
