SLACKER goes around the world
This film follows a backpack that has been separated from its owner. All the efforts to reunite them are dramatic, funny, and surprising. A novel story that is fun to watch.
A lot to carry
A simple question was asked at the end of this film: Did you discover something new about yourself? Or did you discover something new about movies? I answered both those questions at the end of "The Owner." First, I discovered that I take for granted the things I see to be meaningless. Watching this film, I slowly became the main character. I was searching for something. It was not until the credits started to role, I found the answer. This "backpack" was a guide. It took me on this journey around the world, and I saw that no matter where we are, we always find ourselves searching. The collaboration with filmmakers from different cultures blended the storyline nicely. It gave me a sense of togetherness. Bottom line, this is a good movie, and a great film.
