Movie Info

Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can't be stopped. Abbie's older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: beat the infamous level 256 in Pac-Man and no getting up from the couch until he does so. Abbie's survival story begins here; inside a rotting living room with no food or water, and a revolving door of numb-nut friends and acquaintances. It's THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL by way of SLACKER.

Potrykus found innumerable ways to render cinematic the film's single location, a grungy Michigan apartment where a childlike slacker spends months trying to reach the fabled 257th level of Pac-Man.

Some may find this movie unbearable; yet there's a place for pictures that push us to the limits of forbearance. Sometimes, even the loathsome have stories worth telling.

I can't honestly recommend Relaxer to most readers, but if you like this kind of thing, you'll probably love it.

March 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

For a movie that's often embarrassingly funny-with its absurdist hangout dialogue, posturing nobodies, and perfectly timed spews-Relaxer is fundamentally sad.

March 20, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.
