Follows the last day of high school for various groups of students in an Austin, Texas suburb, circa May 1976. A cult coming-of-age comedy, told in a non-traditional narrative style, almost without structure and in approximate real time. Linklater’s second film again proves his immense talent for capturing specific moments of people’s lives. A kaleidoscopic view of 1970’s American youth culture. Excellent, almost anthropological character study, played by a memorable ensemble cast. Many of the actors in the film would later become some of today’s most talented actors – Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich.
Evokes an intelligent sense of humor and a feeling of freedom and youth.
The film is coupled by a superb Classic Rock soundtrack, including timeless songs by Deep Purple, KISS, Ted Nugent, Nazareth, Foghat, Sweet, War, Balck Sabbath, ZZ Top…
