Everybody Wants Some!! ★★★★

SXSW 2016 Narrative Feature; Headliners 

Linklater's raunchiest yet, and rather straightforward for a Dazed & Confused "spiritual" sequel, yet still meandering nonetheless. I still hate the 'American Pie spin-off" cinematography; could've been more interesting with some 80s film stock and grain as opposed to updated camera techniques/quality. Really funny moments here, some unexpected inquisitive questions on identity and purpose, a rockin soundtrack, and stellar writing. i'm probably gonna bump this up to 5 stars come the fourth or fifth viewing. so much fun to revisit

+ meeting 1/2 of the cast and later finding out one of them went to my HS just amped up how inclusive and happy this film makes me feel. luv
