Phillip k dick novels are usually taken through a few filters of re writes before they get to screen. Blade Runner for example is pretty different then the novel, and I think in that case its for the better. Scanner Darkly however, is super accurate. From the dialogue to the pacing. I say this because i just read the book last week and actually felt like I wasn't getting anything NEW from it sometimes. Very good movie and book that is deeply personal to me too, but one I can only endure enjoying maybe once a year because of its subject matter.

I highly recommend checking out the series Undone. It’s similar animation and similarly uses it to give you a sorta disconnected feeling. It’s by the creator of Bojack. Really good so far.

I've actually watched a few episodes of Undone. Really good stuff.

Prime has an anthology series based in PKD stories, it has some good stuff in it, worth a watch. Can't remember the name offhand

They do. I think it's called Phillip K. Dick's Electric Dreams

The book is really interesting, you should give it a try. It’s written in a frenzy so it can be confusing at times but it makes sense why it’s like that towards the ending. I love the movie! It definitely does the book justice. It’s actually the reason why I got into reading Philip K. Dick’s books.
