Richard Linklater | 1991 | USA | 97'

Director Richard Linklater is always busy with time. Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, his romance trilogy, was made and also set nine years between instalments. Boyhood was shot a few weeks annually over 12 years. And Slacker, one of his earliest films, floats in almost real-time through the lives of it’s vast cast on a single-day in Austin, Texas. These mostly twenty-something oddballs include, conspiracy theorists, a young woman trying to sell Madonna’s pap smear, an anarchist who befriends his robber, a guy obsessed with the effect Smurfs are having on the younger generation, and a man played by Linklater himself telling his taxi driver about parallel universes. It’s a calm but unwavering analysis of people, and ultimately a loving portrait of a generation. There’s no three act structure here, so sit back, kick your shoes off, and enjoy the ride as we float along through time.
