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