Slacker (1991)

Richard Linklater's breakthrough feature Slacker (1991) was a brilliant idea for a low-budget movie. Seeking to capture the mood of a generation that did not want to get stuck in dead-end jobs like its parents, the movie simply moves from one free-thinking character to another. If one character is speaking, and another wanders by, the film follows the second one, etc. Armed with his witty, wordy script, and some colorful characters on the streets of Austin, Texas, the rest could be done with little fuss. The result is still thoughtful and hilarious, as well as an essential snapshot of a certain time and place. read more...

Thank You for Smoking (2006)

Most social/political satires forget to balance character with plot, or worse, the thin jokes collapse under the pressure of an easy, likeable third-act conclusion. But the new Thank You for Smoking deftly avoids all these pitfalls, checking in as a well-rounded and hilariously direct satire. After a series of short films, writer/director Jason Reitman -- son of Ivan (Ghostbusters) Reitman -- makes his big screen debut with this story of a tobacco lobbyist, Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart). read more...

Boy (2012)

Coming-of-age movies are quickly becoming the most tiresome of movie genres. There are two reasons for this: one is that it's a rare skill to be able to remember one's childhood with painful accuracy (not just nostalgia), and the second is that, when filmmakers do fail to remember their own childhood, they simply borrow from other coming-of-age movies. read more...

Hi, Mom! (1970)

Before he strode confidently into Hitchcock territory, filmmaker Brian De Palma began his career in the late 1960s and early 1970s with a series of anti-authority satires. Hi, Mom! (1970) wasn't quite as controversial as its X-rated predecessor, Greetings (1968), but it still has a bite, even today. Robert DeNiro stars as Jon Rubin, a Vietnam vet looking to find his place in America. He gets the idea of making porno films with a voyeuristic quality, filming the residents of a neighboring apartment building from his window. read more...
