June 15, 2006: CulturePulp talks with director Richard Linklater about Philip K. Dick and "A Scanner Darkly."

Endnotes & Digressions:

Colors and some inks for this installment by Bill Mudron.

2. This comic strip was condensed (more like vacuum-packed) from a 45-minute phone interview with Mr. Linklater, conducted June 15. Want to read the whole 4,500-word transcript -- which goes into more detail about everything, and contains a pretty funny rant about the abuse of “director’s cuts” as marketing tools? You can find it right here.

3. Links to a couple of goodies referenced in the strip: Here's that audio file of Dick reading a passage from "Scanner"; and here's a link to an online version of Robert Crumb's amazing comic, "The Religious Experience of Philip K. Dick."
