DAZED AND CONFUSED
US, 1993, HD, VO ENG, 102'
In 1993, Richard Linklater (known for the "Before" trilogy and "Boyhood") came up with the hilarious coming-of-age movie "Dazed and Confused". It is May 1976 in Texas. The last schoolday of the year has arrived and with it the annual hazing of new freshmen. Meanwhile, the local teenagers experiment with drugs, alcohol and sex. The star cast includes (in junior version) Ben Affleck, Jason London, Milla Jovovich, and and excellent Matthew McConaughey.
“I wanted to do a teen movie to fill some gaps of things I hadn’t seen in teen movies, and my experience was never so dramatic. So I wanted to capture the feeling of driving around, trying to be cool. It was tone and atmosphere. That’s what was churning around inside me. The mooood.” (Richard Linklater in “The Daily Beast“)
