Like George Lucas' American Graffiti, Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused is an affectionate look at the youth culture of a bygone era. While Lucas took aim at the conservative 1950's, Linklater ju... read more

Funny, authentic and extremely nostalgic of its time period, 'Dazed and Confused' is the 'American Graffiti' for the 1970s decade, but a whole lot more rebellious and drug-induced. Writer/director Richard Linklater captures youth culture in such an exquisite way as he expresses t...

It does a good job at recreating the 70s and some of the characters are cool, but there is no story whatsoever. If you're into the 70s you'll probably love this movie; it really takes you to that era.

A superb feel good film that acts as a time capsule for 1976. Great performances.

Mercilessly honest and realistically portrayed, Dazed and Confused captures the entire high school experience within the story of one night. While the story may not really go anywhere or have much of a climax, the multiple characters are each carefully crafted and the script is p...

As accurate a depiction of a time and people as I have ever seen, with quite literally the soundtrack of my teenage existence. As I watched I realized "I sat in that car, I went to that party, I knew those guys." The collection of young talent here is amazing as well. And a so...

It was the last day of school in 1976, a time they'd never forget... if only they could remember.
Good cool movie! It was a blast to see. Funny moments and lots of familiar faces doing crazy things. Great Cast!
