Slacker – Blu-ray Edition
Slacker, directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused), presents a day in the life of a loose-knit Austin, Texas, subculture populated by eccentric and overeducated young people. Shooting on 16 mm for a mere $3,000, writer-producer-director Linklater and his crew of friends threw out any idea of a traditional plot, choosing instead to create a tapestry of over a hundred characters, each as compelling as the last. Slacker is a prescient look at an emerging generation of aggressive nonparticipants, and one of the key films of the American independent film movement of the 1990s.

On their site it looks like the DVD version has some features missing from this one. Kin of sticks in my craw.

Seems like most of the stuff missing is just photo galleries and still items, most of which are getting dropped from all Blu upgrades from CC.

Thanks Ronald.  I'll pre-order this ASAP.  My favorite Linklater film.
