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.
It's a thoroughly unpleasant experience that, at best, is somewhat humorous as a sketch. At worst, it's an endless trudge through the mind of toxic, irresponsible man-children.
With Relaxer shifting from comedic survival story to absurdist horror in its third act, it's at this point in the story where Potrykus has sold his film to the audience. Relaxer prevails as an unbearable survival story.
Relaxer is a bizarre, yet special film, which only cements Potrykus as one of cinemas finest young filmmakers working today.
Relaxer takes the viewer on a surreal, but nostalgic, trip back to the nineties.
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.
Joel Potrykus's droll world is defined by feats of man-child pettiness, by lazy guys who turn the banalities of daily life into meaningless trials of integrity.
A borderline masterpiece of "what the fuck" insanity, films that are simultaneously this absurd and this watchable are a feat.
