#129 Slacker (1991)
Director: Richard Linklater
Cast: Richard Linklater, Kim Krizan, Marc James, Stella Weir, John Slate
A very 90s film, full of short vignettes of the lives of disgruntled slackers residing in Austin, Texas-- spewing about their own philosophies, their own lives, etc. Much like coffee and cigarettes, I felt this movie certainly calls to a certain audience that are interested in a certain genre of culture/film-making.
It came at a good time though, and it got me to thinking a lot about my own life and the times I've been inspired/free vs. the bullshit I catch myself giving in to. But that's another blog for another day. Excellent movie.
