Rian’s review published on Letterboxd:
''That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.'' - Wooderson.
That line is so wrong, yet Matthew McConaughey makes it all right, all right, all right. This is just one of those movies which gets better with every viewing for me. Not only is it probably the greatest 'hangout' movie ever made (as Quentin Tarantino nicely put it), it is arguably the ultimate teenage picture: great characters, soundtrack, direction, writing... everything. A wonderful homage to American Graffiti.
''Man, it's the same bullshit they tried to pull in my day. If it ain't that piece of paper, there's some other choice they're gonna try and make for you. You gotta do what Randall Pink Floyd wants to do man. Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N.''
