Slacker

You probably saw Slacker twenty years ago in your “experimental” days at the university, most likely under the influence of something. And you should watch this offbeat art-flick again, this time in its upgraded Criterion Collection version. You might remember with some fondness the misfits and losers you used to associate with. Sober or otherwise, this era-defining film will take you back to the weirdo days of the dawning 90s.

The Gambler

70s Hollywood bad-ass James Caan earned himself a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Alex Freed, an NYU Lit. Professor and gambling addict. It’s loosely based on the Dostoevsky novel of the same name so be sure to drop that nug when you tell people you watched it, smarty pants.

Fort Apache, the Bronx at werd.com
Fort Apache, the Bronx

By the 1970s, decades of divestment and inner-city strife had taken its toll on New York City’s South Bronx. Burned out buildings, street crime and unrestrained violence ruled the streets. The cops couldn’t keep up and NYPD’s South Bronx precinct became known as Fort Apache; an outpost under attack. In this hard-boiled 1981 police drama, Paul Newman plays a veteran cop trying to maintain his humanity in a brutally hostile corner of the Big Apple.

Croupier

What better place for a down and out writer than working in a casino? It helps pay the bills and makes his pathetic life seem pretty okay compared to the addicted zeroes he encounters on the casino floor. Getting tangled up in a sex-fueled caper with his greedy co-workers gives the protagonist Jack (Clive Owen) just the plot twist he was looking for. Or does it?

The Dead Zone

As a mob boss or a crook with an itchy trigger finger, Christopher Walken is one weird, scary bastard. But he might be even creepier when he’s saving people’s lives. In 1983’s The Dead Zone, based on a Stephen King story, Walken plays a man who awakes from a coma with powers of premonition. He has visions of tragedies just before they happen. Is this power a gift or a curse?

River’s Edge at werd.com
River’s Edge

Keanu Reeves’ 1987 performance as one of a pack of high school losers in the Pacific Northwest is completely out-shined by the compelling weirdness of Crispin Glover and Dennis Hopper. One of these loser kids killed a girl and nobody seems to care. “Wanna go see the body?”

Dark City

If movie-time for you means a complete vacation from reality for 2-hours, Dark City could be worthy. Of course you also have to be down with a dark, comic-book style hero playing the lead. If you saw the movie Crow or I, Robot, you know that visionary-weirdo director Alex Proyas will take you places you’ve never even dreamed of.
