America, 1976. The last day of school. Dazed and Confused follows the adventures of a group of teenagers over the course of one day. Among the best teen films ever made, Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused eavesdrops on a group of seniors-to-be and incoming freshmen. A launching pad for a number of future Hollywood stars, Linklater’s first studio effort also features endlessly quotable dialogue and an incredible soundtrack. Sidestepping nostalgia, the film is less about “the best years of our lives” than the boredom, angst, and excitement of teenagers waiting . . . for something to happen.
