Movie-A-Day #16: Slacker (1991).

January 16, 2011

Would you believe that today is National Nothing Day? The day has been celebrated annually since 1973 when it was started by a newspaper editor who wanted everyone to have a day when we don’t have to do anything, be anywhere or celebrate anything. Sounds like everyday for the denizens of Richard Linklater’s “Slacker.” Plot? Don’t need it. Real characters? Don’t need them either. The film is just a daisy chain, following one aimless person after another as they go through their day not doing much of anything. Because we all need a day to slack off once in a while.
