Slacker/Chasing Amy

This strange and quirky movie is about a group of “slackers” whose lives are uninspiring, however they still have the dreams and hopes of everyone else. It begins with a young man riding in a taxi who speaks his thoughts on alternative realities and that every cross-road you reach create another reality, however unfortunately for us… we are stuck in the one single reality. Once he arrives at his intended destination, he sees a woman who has been involved in a hit and run incident. From their the story changes as we continue following different characters as each of their lives are irrevocably connected. The movie revolves around the subculture of American slackers and questions the norms and people of society which of course is quite relative to the individual experiencing it which is the key behind this film. Although director Linklater has been linked to Kevin Smith’s style of work (Clerks and Mall Rats), Linklater’s vision for the film slacker is father more subversive and realistic that he although he makes references to pop culture, they are not as over the top as Smith’s comedic tales. At the end of the day, Linklater questions the viewer and opens up the choices that we make in our every day lives and how our actions or inactions effect the very fabric of our lives, proving that we are responsible for our destiny.his harsh story revolves around one of the Britain’s most powerful crime families and was written and directed by investigative report Donal MacIntyre that revolves around the exploits of Dominic Noonan.

At 39 years of age, Noonan has spent 22 years in prison and does make for a formidable opponent. This story is quite insightful as it gives you a better understanding of the British sense of crime and how the life of Noonan led to him becoming one of the UK’s most dangerous men.

Noonan even changed his name to Lattlay Fottfoy which is an acronym for “Look after those that look after you, F**k off those that f**k off you" and one cannot help but feel some connection to this interesting individual who allegedly is now on the straight and narrow as he runs his own security firm.

MacIntyre’s A Very British Gangster is a truly insightful movie that almost has parallel links to Australia’s Chopper Reid through the Noonan’s charisma and exploits. Definitely one for lovers of real-world crime figures!
