Movie Info

Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can't be stopped. Abbie's older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: beat the infamous level 256 in Pac-Man and no getting up from the couch until he does so. Abbie's survival story begins here; inside a rotting living room with no food or water, and a revolving door of numb-nut friends and acquaintances. It's THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL by way of SLACKER.


Critic Reviews for Relaxer

Through its precise filmmaking and whirlwind script about one loser who never gets off the couch, it's a magnetic, five-senses experience for slacker cinema.

Wildly, happily unique.

Relaxer forces viewers to engage with its off-kilter frequency, and risks pushing the material too far with a final time jump.

The presumed message - get off the couch and live for yourselves, young Americans! - might be a little more persuasive if our onscreen stand-in were not so revolting.

I was delighted by the third-act developments in what had already been a witty, strange comedy. I'm not sure what I saw, but I'm glad I saw it.

Relaxer's premise is, somehow, both exactly what the movie's about, and utterly unrepresentative of what kind of experience it is.
