odd, very odd, part drama part dark comedy will very much appeal to fans of the off beat, the very off-beat.

Slumming is great at first just because it has a premise you have not seen in a hundred other films. Its about a jerky young guy who bored with his life plays practical jokes on people (usually involving arranged blind dates made online and secretly taken crotch shots with his phone) One night while going around with his friend he sees a passed out drunk guy lying on a bench in front of a train station. He randomly decides to take said passed out drunk guy, put him in the trunk of his car, and drive him across the border into another country at a similar looking bench in front of a similar looking train station. (The jerky young guy keeps laughingly repeating-- "He'll think the train station shrank!" while driving back home with his friend) The rest of the movie mostly involves two different plot lines--one involving the passed out drunk guy coming to and trying to wander home, or at least wander somewhere in search of warmth and more alcohol. The second plot line involves the jerky young guy and his new relationship with this woman he meets on one of his arranged blind dates who seems to understand his penchant for playing pranks and trying to wake himself up so he's not simply sleeping through his life. (or something like that) Unfortunately as amused as she is by most of the stuff he does--she does not find the thought of what he did to the passed out drunk guy very funny at all and sets out to find him and bring him back. Why? I'm not too sure, but I suppose it gives the film something to give the audience someone to relate to because we're probably not going be able to relate to either of the other two guys at the center of the film (though I should admit I did kind of like the jerky young guy.) The first half hour or so is really very intriguing. I liked the central premise very, very much that I was willing to go with the film wherever it went. That intrigue actually takes the movie far enough--you spend a good majority of the movie wondering just where this film is actually going. Unfortunately it eventually becomes clear that the film isn't really going to go anywhere all that interesting. (in fact the movie essentially ends with an ending that's kind of the equivalent of shrugging your shoulders--I mean its an ending in the sense that the three characters get a resolution, but the resolution is more up in the air than concrete.) Also as much as I liked this fact--truthfully you're probably not going to be able to identify with either the jerky young guy, or the passed out drunk guy who while realistically portrayed is hard to evoke sympathy for given that he clearly doesn't want any.(basically once he wakes up, he marches around seeking shelter which he eventually finds, then he roams around again eventually hiding out in both a barn alongside some cows, and hiding out in the luggage compartment of a professional sports team's bus...I should add that throughout the movie he essentially berates the majority of people he ends up coming across. I mean he's nice enough to the kind souls who try to help him a little but but for the most part he's belligerent, angry, and almost always cursing in the only somewhat coherent ways that the drunk homeless sometimes do.) The film is good in that it doesn't ask for any sympathy for any of its characters (both of whom take life on their own terms) Its also good in that you really don't know where its going to go as the film keeps going along. However as interesting as it is, after a while it starts to become a little bit of a drag in that its hard to really connect with either of its two main characters (which is probably why they brought in the woman to search for the drunk guy--as an audience surrogate) So interesting and definitely worth a look for fans of the off-beat but not super terrific.
