Re-watched "Slacker" last night. Such a good film. It's amazing how timely it is almost twenty years later. You've got characters complaining about how President Bush is claiming a mandate with having won just over half the vote, talk of terrorism on American soil, and of course tons of conspiracy theorizing.
It was interesting to hear in the making of part, that when Linkletter made it, the term "slacker" didn't have the negative connotations it currently has. To his eyes, the term just refered to counter-culture types, people outside of the mainstream.
