Dazed and Confused

Dazed and Confused ★★★½

Really charming and well done high school movie.

Although this film is held in high regard, after just getting off of "Waking Life" and "Before Sunrise" it just feels like this Linklater film didn't have as much to chew on in comparison.

That's not to diss the movie, though. It's a pretty essential 70s period piece. High school was a very different place back then, and I think this a great testament to that. Made me feel nostalgic for a time I didn't even live through.

The soundtrack for this movie is fucking dope and as far as I'm concerned might be the best part of the film next to the memorable characters. It was really weird seeing Ben Affleck that young as well.

Anyway, I might expand my thoughts later, but right now all I can say is that I recommend it and I l'm glad I saw it.

7.5/10
