Aro Recommended Slacker


USA 1992, 97 minutes
Dir. Richard Linklater
Rating: [PG] contains coarse language
Genres: Cult / Independent

Topics: Landmark.


Aroview: A hugely original and influential film that virtually coined the phrase for young aimless academics of the 1990s. Essentially plotless, it is literally a chain of events - the camera follows a inter-changeable character through Austin, Texas from one hilarious slice-of-life to another. The supposed improvisation of the actors is in fact brilliantly scripted, ironically deriving a significant something out of its thematic nothingness.
