Contextual studies - part two term two

Slacker - 1991

Something of a stream of consciousness by Director and Actor (above) Richard Linklater - including

I may live badly, but at least I don't have to work to do it
you should quit
quit following me
fair share of crazies
death rituals
you should never name things in order
oblique strategies
all their goddam individualness
you should quit harassing women with sexual intercourse
unfamiliar with profound self contempt
every single commodity you produce is a piece of your own death
I have less important things to do
belief put into action
Mr perfect
material world material girl
I'm glad that son of a bitch is dead - I thought he'd never die

passion for destruction is also a creative passion
better than a sharp stick in the eye
terrorism is the surgical strike capability of the oppressed
pop tart
did travel trip really happen
magic contour
next person who passses us will be dead in a fortnight
colonised outer space
thank fuck for that
recalibration of my mind
anti artist
time doesn't exist
who's ever written a great work about the immense effort required in order not to create
take scooby doo
light blue collar family
ramble on
when young we mourn for one woman but when we are old we mourn for all women
mr potatoe head
pixel vision camera

obsessiveness without personality
suppressed transmission
happiest I've been for a long time
been on the moon since the 50's

Man at the video shop said if you like Slacker you've got to see Dazed and Confused and the two linked fims Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.
