Well that's cool too. I liked some parts of the film (mostly the landscapes and visuals), but I found the opposite to be the case for me. Its likely that I have a preference for analog films, as I find new films are often lacking in elements which I appreciate. I actually like grit, grime, and scratches on film, and other imperfections that are often overlooked today.I've had Jack of Shadows on my to-read list for years.
Yep. Not sure that Valis or Ubik would make a great film, though .
On a side note, if I'm honest, I find Bladerunner a bit overrated...I see it most successful as a mood piece, and thus very impactful aesthetically. But from a purely movie-watching point of view, I actually liked the sequel more, even if it goes against the grain of what I said in the OP.
