Richard Linklater's first (and little seen) film is as mentally unwieldy as its title. But under the cryptic title and Jarmusch-like non-narrative is an interesting -- if far from classic -- narrative on the boringness of daily life (at least for Gen X slackers). A direct precursor to Slacker, Linklater's characters here are far more unmotivated in life. At least in Slacker people are trying to do something -- even if it's fixing a car. Plow's characters are content to ride busses and watch TV, while Linklater's unblinking camera captures it all. As a meditation on life, solitude, and how mundane traveling can be it's got a little something to it, but as a narrative it offers a mere taste of what Linklater would become capable of. Shot on Super 8 and packaged on DVD with Criterion's release of Slacker.
