There's perhaps no better indication of what 'Slacker,'Richard Linklater's film from 1991 and our free movie pick of the day, wants to achieve than in the first seven minutes of the film.

Linklater himself steps off a bus, starts a rambling discourse with a silent cabdriver about the possibility of alternate realities while referencing 'The Wizard of Oz,' Leo Tolstoy, Frank Zappa and 'The Omega Man,' then later discovers the body of a woman struck by a car surrounded by a group of people who couldn't be bothered to help.
