A slacker's perspective on a killer movie about slackers.
I feel the movie broke ground for the popular lifestyle movie genre that appears today. The premise has to be one of the most original "tangent" story telling styles. It was not so much the characters and their roles but the atmosphere they could create in the short time alloted towards the movie's overall theme. There were no need for big name stars, but the movie took the personalities the many characters provided and entwined them in a unique mesh. By the end of the movie, I felt satiated with a full plate of craziness, eccentricity, and life that sneaks by us day to day. It was not so much how the story would progress towards an ending, but how the stories would interact. Definitely an enjoyable experience.
