Slacker

In terms of its narrative, Slacker falls somewhere in between Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise and Robert Altman’s Nashville, with a structure similar to Twenty Bucks.

But thematically, Slacker is really about finding yourself and about rejecting the status quo for something more personally rewarding. It’s about being true to yourself, even if that means settling for less in order to follow your dreams.

It’s a movie best described as a micro-budget comedy about media-obsessed young Americans not interested in the American Dream, but instead preoccupied - or at least satisfied - with the now.

If you are a fan of Richard Linklater’s work but haven’t had a chance to see his first movie Slacker, we highly recommend it, if only to see a snapshot of what college life was like before the internet.
