Dazed and Confused 

Richard Linklater


Dazed and Confused
Directed by: Richard Linklater
(Criterion)
Throughout the ’90s, Richard Linklater’s ode to youth was the ultimate party- and ’70s throwback-movie. Today, it plays more like grunge-era nostalgia. But the slow burn impact Dazed had on ’90s teens was that it rejected the dramatics of the John Hughes template for something more direct—the meaningless satisfaction of hanging out. This is the deluxe DVD treatment the film has needed for years.
