Waking Life -Movie Review

 

 

            Waking Life by Richard Linklater is an animated movie about a nameless young male character who finds himself lost in a continuous series of dreams. The character, played by Wiley Wiggins, levitates and walks from one dream scene to another, listening to the ideologies of intellectuals, crackpots, and philosophers. The continuous dreams place the young man in an ethereal existence that does not have transitions between daily events and ultimately leads to an existential crisis. He observes and later engages in discussions with the other characters on critical and controversial issues, such as the meaning of life, free will, metaphysics, and social psychology. Waking life touches on various philosophical values, including lucid dreaming, existentialism, post-humanity, celebrated figures in the community, and situational politics.

            The film starts with a little girl telling viewers: “Dream is Destiny.” Afterward, a little boy gets into a strange accident and looks up into the sky to see a shooting star. Suddenly, he floats from the ground, only able in a few seconds to grab onto the door handle of a car to avoid drifting into the sky. The young boy (protagonist) then begins the journey of finding out as much as he can from dreams. He is particularly keen about lucid dreaming as observed by Sharmans and creative individuals who enjoy being in the imagined world and view it as real as numbers in real life. The different characters that the boy interacts with tell him not to conform to boredom, corporate slavery, revenge, fear, and dehumanization. Others implore him to cherish real conversations, celebrate in the moment, avoid negativity, and remain alert..............GET A PLAGIARISM FREE COPY
