Slacker (slak'er), n. 1. a person who evades his or her duty or work; shirker
that launched a thousand imitators. But none of the effusive 20-somethings littering the casts of 1990s US independent cinema can hold a candle to those of this hilarious and vibrant true original.
2. a person who evades military service.
3. Term popularised in the early 1900 for an esp. educated young person who is anti-materialistic, purposeless, apathetic, and usually works in a dead-end job and rejects the values of the generation before them.
4. The title of a film directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Linklater.
Richard Linklater's breakout second film is an utterly unique series of loosely interweaved episodes shining a delightfully off-beat light on a parade of socially disconnected, overly educated, and barely motivated citizens in Austin, Texas.
Set in coffeehouses, clubs, bars, apartments, stores, and streets of the college town, Slacker shows life's strange quirks, odd foibles and disruptive inanities in all their glory. Linklater's film remains a cult sensation
