Had somehow forgotten how funny this movie is.
I think I would have liked this movie more if I had seen it before LInklater's later films. Instead I was late to see it and as a consequence it seemed more like a prototype to me than a fully fleshed-out movie. This is especially true in comparison to Waking Life, which has the same style of free-form, rambling narrative but with a much stronger thematic element to back it up.
I prefer this to Waking Life. I think Waking Life is more than a little bit masturbatory, where this is lovingly satirical. I suppose it just fits my taste better than most other Linklater movies.
I re-watched this like probably 2 days pre-Letterboxd era and really missed out on the chance to write an enchanting capsule review for it. I've been meaning to re-re-watch and deliver said enchantment but now I have to wait the mandatory post-Joe month-ish cooldown period.
I say you just step on Joe's review. Show him who's the alpha dog here.
Is it a requirement of moving to Austin that you must watch or re-watch this movie? Like some sort of hipster training video?
Joe responds violently if he even thinks there's any kind of alpha-dog action being perpetrated on his person.
What if I just post the review here as a comment, like "fuck it I ain't even gonna log this shit." And then somebody hands me a mic which I promptly drop.
Cuban necktie that freelance motherfucker
If you watch Slacker before 2014 I kill you Hobbes
It's a Colombian necktie, Pat. A Cuban necktie is a paisley bowtie.
Either is acceptable, Oz. www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Cuban%20Necktie
Well I guess I must defer to Urban Dictionary, the most legitimate of all sources.
