Edit: Found. Thanks a bunch to everyone!

So there was this movie playing on a stream, and it looked really awesome. I wanted to know what it is so I can go check it out.

Here is all I can muster from what I saw:

The movie had a very realistic, sketchy animation look to it. Almost like Archer but way more "flow"y. I saw one of the dudes in the chat had said that this was after editing, so it was shot with real dudes and actors and edited this way? I don't know.

The plot: There was a man who had about 10000 different body parts that he would cycle through in seconds, making his original identity impossible to find. The original identity was shown, and the dude looked like Keanu Reaves with a beard. (Edit: What do you know, it was Keanu Reaves) He then gave a speech to what looked like a group of important dudes in suits.

It seemed like the main dude was a brown man with long hair and a beard. He kindof looked like a lighter Harold Perrineau and had some sort of relationship with bugs or something.

I know it isn't much, but that's all I could gather from watching it for like 5 minutes midway before the stream went down.

What a weird trailer

Good film, another jaunt from the erstwhile slacker & versatile man of directing Richard Linklater.

I suggest Waking Life if you want to continue down the roto-scoped rabbit hole.

Also, it totally was Keanu Reeves :)

I don't know if I like that Rotoscoped style or not. It looks really weird

Edit: A Scanner Darkly is awesome. I still need to read the book.

I still haven't seen A Scanner Darkly. I probably should at some point.

@Jrinswand: I read the book first, and I think the two are interchangeable. You might enjoy it, I enjoyed the movie, after all, but there won't be much different to catch your eye.
