Rare are works of Art that capture a time and the subculture of a generation... This one does! Linklater immortalizes the generation that I belonged to with all of its beauty and folly... Yes we were stoned, yes we smoked like ashtrays, yes we engaged in drunk conversations about the utopian motifs of cartoons and a generalized confusion about politics... After watching it I felt satisfied as I rarely am these days... We were ready for the internet yet still looked at books... Relationships were transitory and having a beer or a coffee meant so much more... We were still Marxists and admired feminine beauty in all its forms... This is the masterpiece that encapsulates a world that I loved no matter how screwed up and naïve it was... A great film that I strongly recommend!!!

When the film "Slacker" opened in 1991, it wasn't long before its director, Richard Linklater, found himself in the spotlight, fielding questions about the generation portrayed in his movie. This enlightening companion book was published a year later and not only addresses some of the media hype surrounding the film, but includes a wealth of additional information, insights, and trivia for fans. There's a brief section on Texas' slacker past, a bit on why Austin was the perfect backdrop for the film, and Linklater describes the ideas that led up to its creation. An early 'roadmap' of the script lays out the basic action of each scene, followed by the full transcription of the final film (which is very handy for quoting the dialogue). There's also actor profiles, providing over 70 entertaining bios of each of the folks who appeared in the movie, as well as a section of notes from the crew. The pages often recall the feel of a fanzine, filled with numerous photos, stills, clip art, and flyers from Austin rock shows and film festivals. The sidebars are peppered with Linklater's diary entries, chronicling the "Slacker" project from the beginning brainstorming stages to the eventual screenings and publicity. All in all, this is a fantastic book for both aspiring directors and devotees of the cult film.

I am so happy Slacker is finally getting a dvd release, and the fact it's going to be released as a special two disc set, as part of the Criterion collection, is awesome. Dazed and Confused, and Waking Life were great, but Slacker is Richard Linklater's best film. Strange, funny, and sad, it is the most unique film I have ever seen. If you have seen it, then your probably just as stoked as I am. If you haven't seen it, holy cow, your in for a treat. One of the best films of the 90's. I still don't understand why Slacker has been under the radar for so many years, it's a classic. There is a free flowing structure that works perfectly for the characters, (there are about 80) and locations. The only way I can describe this movie, is that it takes place in Texas, bounces from character to character, getting to know a little about each one along the way. Like all Richard Linklater's movies, It has a very dream like quality. This is a great film.

Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith and Ed Burns are the names that most people come up with when asked to comment on the current crop of popular independent filmmakers. But these people owe it all to Linklater. 'Slacker', the film was the most original use of cinema as an art form that this country has seen since the 1920s. It opened the door for the 90s independent scene. And it's way better than 'Pulp Fiction' or 'Clerks'. This book version is pretty much an acurate representation of the film. It talks about the making of the film, the people in it, the history of Austin and just about everything connected to 'Slacker'. This book is the bible to any modern filmmaker who wants to maintain artistic integrity. If you like Linklater or make films you must buy this book.

Format: Paperback
If you absolutely MUST make the choice between watching the movie or reading the book of Richard Linklater's brilliant "Slacker, get the book.
The book not only contains the entire screenplay but various thoughts from it's creator Richard Linklater, as well as brief material written by such Linklater collaborators as Anne Walker-McBay, Lee Daniel, Clark Walker, and Kim Krizan. The book even has an opening introduction written by "Generation - X" author Douglas Coupland.
This book is an absolute celebration not only of the movie but also of the culture that Linklater has coined a name for.
If you are a fan of Richard Linklater, or if you identify yourself with the characters in "Slacker", then you must obtain this book at any cost!

I regret "loaning" this book to another slacker a few years back, who loaned it to yet another slacker, who drifted to the west coast with it et al...never saw it again. But had I kept it I would've memorized many of the passages (Like the UFO conspiricy rant!) - the book is the story behind the making of the brilliant movie, a story which is every bit as entertaining and thought-provoking as the movie itself! It's unfortuante, and a bit odd that the movie is no longer available at the worlds largest shopping mall, Amazon.com. After all, it WAS a watershed movie. Go figure.
