One Summer in Austin: The Story of Filming 'A Scanner Darkly'

26 min

...would you steal to get the money

or just die?

I think you better go back to the,

you know, prepared text there, Fred.

I forgot it.

I think I have a block against this shit.

Repeat after me,

but make it sound casual.

"Where the profits flow,

we will s...

- and then

retribution will swiftly follow.

At that moment, I would not

want to be in their shoes. " Got it?

You know why I've got a block

against this bullshit?

Because this is what gets people

on drugs.

It's all so disgusting you want to

lurch off and become a user.

Come on, Fred, just say this shit

and get it over with.


Substance D.


D is for dumbness and despair

and desertion.

The desertion of your friends from you,

you from your friends.

Everyone from everyone.

Isolation and Ioneliness...

...and hating and suspecting each other.

D is, finally, death.

Slow death.

From the head down.

Well, that's it.

Okay, let's eat.

All right, what's your name?

My name...

You don't know your name?

Well, that's interesting.

Probable cause. Out of the car, sir.

Now, you have the right

to remain silent until...

And... And anything you say can and

will be used against you when you...

When what?

You know, f*ck this shit.

- Hello?

- Hey, how you doing?

Oh, I'm all right.

Anything wrong?

Just this fucker stole 50 bucks' worth

of shit from us today.

My boss said it was somehow my fault,

and it's coming out of my paycheck...

... which I don 't even think is legal.

I mean, can he legally do that?

Yeah, they can 't do that.

At least, they used to not

be able to do that. I'll check.

Hey, Donna,

can I get anything from you?

Yeah, how much?

- Ten.

- Ten?

Yeah, I'm hurting really bad.

I'll pay you back later.

- Yeah, okay. Say, day after tomorrow?

- Any sooner?
