Non-progressive DVDs for film-based 24fps material are an abomination and I wish that the people who make them would do their homework. I am still on interlaced TVs, but do plan on getting a nice HD...

You lost me there. I don't think Linklater is either a slacker or a video store geek, and I fail to see how he represents a group of such people. Nor can I see much that he has in common with Kevin...
