Slacker Shows Up

Richard Linklater is having a good year; his "The School of Rock" did well at the box office and on home video. He's in pre-production for a sci-fi film based on a Phillip K. Dick story, and it looks like he's doing it right. "Before Sunset", the sequel to one of my favorite films ever will be out this summer, and he's got an expanded edition of "Dazed and Confused" appearing on DVD soon. Today, I saw another announcement that "Slacker", his film that introduced Austin to the film world, would finally be out on DVD in August. According to, it will be a remastered edition including commentaries, deleted footage, 10th anniversary reunion party video, and Linklater's first feature film, "It's Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books". Fortunately, the first film also has commentary, which is probably the only way I'd ever watch it again; I saw it at SXSW 2003, and I found it very tedious, so I'm curious to see how Richard defends it.
