Slacker

Slacker feels exactly like an early Waking Life, which for me is a bad thing. Unlike Waking Life, I could sit through all of Slacker, if not a little bored by it. It has the same format of people talking in one sided conversions at length, then we segue into someone else who happened to walk by. It does have the benefit of a Pixelvision segment. And the subject matter is more political, anti-capitalist and conspiracy-laden. Plus none of the characters seem to work. At all. Despite this, I could barely wait for it to end.
