BLASTERMIND Dick On Screen

(opens in new tab)

It's not what you think, honest! This week's Blastermind is all about the adapted works of PHILIP K Dick. You lot have dirty minds...

It seems every other day someone announces they're making/remaking/thinking-about-potentially-going-to-a-bookstore-and-seeing-if-they-like-the-cover-before-optioning a Philip K Dick story, little surprise given the man's enormous body of work and the endless ideas contained within.

The latest, Total Recall , got a new trailer (opens in new tab) this week, so to mark the occasion here are 10 pictures from Philip K Dick's adapted works on the big and small screen. Can you identify where they're from? Or rather which Dick they are (snarf)?

Usual request: please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
