Editorial Reviews

Slacker, directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused), presents a day in the life of a loose-knit Austin, Texas, subculture populated by eccentric and overeducated young people. Shooting on 16 mm for a mere $3,000, writer-producer-director Linklater and his crew of friends threw out any idea of a traditional plot, choosing instead to create a tapestry of over a hundred characters, each as compelling as the last. Slacker is a prescient look at an emerging generation of aggressive nonparticipants, and one of the key films of the American independent film movement of the 1990s.

    Format: Blu-ray
    Richard Linklater was always spawning ideas about our society and why do we live this way when we should take action. In his first film, Slacker, Linklater focuses on forty different college dropouts and their lives. This is a film I can't really explain to you. It's not necessarily a story, but more of a documentary on urban city life in Austin, Texas. The characters being portrayed are usually non-socialists who happen to drop by different groups and what discussions they come across. Linklater does a supreme job of capturing moments of thought processes and characters with flaws. He also happens to do many one shots in where the camera focuses on that one person and then progresses to the next even if it's only a few minutes. What I really love about this film is how it explains life itself. How our conspiracies form over time. How our obsessions are a part of us, and never falter because it's the only thing that makes us something. It's a highly recommended film that I believe the misanthropes, loners, or outsiders should definitely watch. Definitely changed my life. Linklater your awesome!

    A very good early Richard Linklater film. This Criterion Collection edition offers many extras.
