Dazed and Confused (1993)

It’s the last day of school 1976. Time to party!

*      *      *

“Kids these days!” Every generation assumes that the younger generation is the one that has finally lost it. “We were NEVER like that…” Well thankfully we have filmmakers like Richard Linklater to remind us of one simple truth:

“The older you get, the more rules they are going to try and get you to follow. You just gotta keep on livin', man. L-I-V-I-N.”

Regardless of when they were born, teenagers will always gravitate towards this film because it feels true to how they feel. Adults will always come back to it because it allows them to be young again and spend a day/night hanging out with the freaks and the geeks.

Also - regardless of age, everyone should have no problem grooving on the amazing classic rock soundtrack. Schooooooools out for summ-ah!
