Not Rated
2018
Screening format: DCP

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.

"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."
- The New York Times
"I can't honestly recommend Relaxer to most readers, but if you like this kind of thing, you'll probably love it."
- RogerEbert.com
"As if Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett were fed a diet of Nintendo and pizza."
- Spectrum Culture
"Relaxer might be the grossest movie of the year"
- The AV Club
