Waking Life is about a young man in a persistent lucid dream-like state. The film follows its protagonist as he initially observes and later participates in philosophical discussions that weave together issues like reality, free will, our relationships...
A fun trip through a dream-scape filled with philosophical debate. Not an easy film, but an interesting one.
Pretentious means trying to do something you don't actually know how to, making yourself look better then you really are. This movie is actually intelligent. There's a difference.
I loved it. I've been hooked to the concept of lucid dreaming for a good while now, and I liked the philosophical questions that came up. Admittedly, I'm… kind of new to that way of thinking, or I mean that I haven't really thought about these kind of things seriously.
Only a couple of "discussions" didn't seem to fit, but apart from that it was fantastic. The visual style worked with the dream atmosphere, and the music was great too. Definitely see myself watching this many times over.
