Waking Life is an experimental, documentary-style animated feature which uses rotoscope techniques and is pretty much a host of characters having philosophical discussions about what dreams are.

It's either going to be your thing or it isn't. I personally found it all rather pretentious and although I appreciate Richard Linklater as a filmmaker who likes to do things a little different from the norm, this was just far too arty for me.
