Rachel Malstrom’s review published on Letterboxd:
Watched with Richard Linklater's 2006 Commentary Track on the Criterion Collection Blu-Ray Release of the Film
Tomorrow (May 28th) is Dazed and Confused day, the date that the film takes place on. I had to watch it today instead, because my sister also really likes the film, and she won't be here tomorrow night.
Listening to the commentary track, I nearly squealed when he mentioned Lindsay Anderson's If..., which I have mentioned in a past review that it would be fun to play off this film. It was also fun to hear him talk about the cast the ways in which making such a film within the confines of a studio production was difficult. I honestly admire that he was still able to come out with such an authentic and beautiful film.
Rewatch Dazed and Confused this weekend!
