Excerpt: ”That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” Every so often a movie comes around with a somewhat unknown cast and then…something happens. A star is born! And then two!
Excerpt: Every so often a movie comes around with a somewhat unknown cast and then something happens. A star is born! And then two! And before you know it, this movie is known as “the one” which was a veritable launching pad for a new slew of Hollywood stars and starlets.
Summary: 'Dazed and Confused' is a funny and heartfelt look at adolescent culture through a loose lens of organic storytelling that's free of the rigid constructs of traditional plotting. The video transfer is solid and the audio is very good. Supplements are sparse and only vaguely related to the film.
Conclusion: One of Richard Linklater's better movies, Dazed and Confused is an entertaining time capsule with strong performances and a sly sense of humor. The HD DVD edition has decent picture and sound quality, though the movie's bigger fans will want to hold onto the Criterion Collection DVD for its wealth...
Conclusion: Despite some gags which use the benefit of hindsight too much for their own good, this is a smart piece of filmmaking which suggests Linklater is already one of the more formidable talents of the 90s.
