Here's two animations that show a good/different use of rotoscoping. Both use it as a means to an end, with a purpose that lifts it above and makes it worth animating, rather than just filming.

This first one is called 'Table for Two'. It's about the up's and down's of a relationship.

and here is the second called Stand Up. The first time I watched this animation, I thought it was very hard hitting and clever with its use of rotoscope. It evokes the phrase 'Animation is the iron fist in the velvet glove..', both because its an animation (often seen as a childrens genre) and secondly because of its use of comedy.

And then of course there is always A Scanner Darkly. Ciao.
