A Scanner Darkly

Corrected entry: In the last scene in Hank's office, just before his true identity is revealed, his shadow on the wall behind him has long hair although his head in the scramble suit has short hair most of the time and his hair never matches the contour of the shadow.

Correction: The shadow does not show long hair, it just shows the shapeless hood of the scramble suit.

Mike: I believe God's M.O. is to transmute evil into good and if He's active here, he's doing that now. Although our eyes can't perceive it. The whole process is hidden beneath the surface of our reality. It will only be revealed later. And even then, the people of the future, our children's children, will never truly know this awful time that we have gone through and the losses we took. Maybe some footnote in a minor history book, a brief mention with no list of the fallen.

Question: When Bob is looking at a video, he stops at a figure of a woman. He then uses a switch and watches as the woman in the video turns into another woman. Why does he keep going back and forth between the two women?

Answer: It's only one woman in reality. He had sex with a woman named Connie, but woke up next to her later and thought it was his friend Donna. The video showing it as two women is Bob losing his grip on reality due to his addiction to Substance D.
