121. Slacker (1991)
-Sorry I'm late.
-That's okay, time doesn't exist.
Richard Linklater is my favorite director of all time. He has directed some pretty big films that you might've heard of: The Bad News Bears remake and School of Rock. Just for the record, these are my least favorite of his films. Linklater is best when he is simply filming people talking. This film is very unconventional in that it is just a series of conversations that people have as the camera wonders around "bohemian" Austin, Texas. I know this type of film probably bores most people, but I eat it up. Some highlights include philosophical debates, UFO theories, and an enterprising woman trying to sell Madonna's pap smear...
