Hello Chicago Film Lovers,
We had a great meetup last night talking about "High Noon" and western cinema. At the end of our film discussion, I always take input from all of you about the next movie I choose to discuss. We talked about picking a documentary or an animated film. As always, I chose something not mentioned, but related :).
So next month we'll talk about Richard Linklater's animated film "Waking Life" (2001), starring Ethan Hawke. Linklater is also the director of "Before Sunrise", "Before Sunset", and "Before Midnight", which stars both Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. He did another animated film similar to "Waking Life" in 2006 called "A Scanner Darkly". I have not seen "Waking Life, but have always wanted to. Looking at reviews and seeing other Linklater films, I believe this a good choice. So join me Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 PM to talk about the philosophical, dream like animated film "Waking Life".
