Critic Reviews for Slackistan

All Critics (3)

A laudable but laboured twist on slackerdom.

Full Review… | December 8, 2010
Total Film

It's somewhat stiffly acted by non-professionals, and its earnestness might leave you with a hankering for the sly humour of mumblecores.

Guardian

The pacing is sometimes overly languid, the script often ponderous and the performances decidedly mixed. But this knowing drama is undoubtedly a laudable effort.
