Quote from: gilbertharding on September 24, 2021, 02:09:53 PMWhat do you think of American Graffiti? I see that and D&C as twins - and both only as deep as you want them to be.On D&C, costumes aside, I found the wigs a bit too distracting, but the soundtrack was great and the cars were good.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on September 09, 2021, 03:30:21 AMHaha - if you're no fan of his, Waking Life will probably only strengthen your distaste. Then again, its art/animation style and soundtrack are interesting enough on their own, and some of the sequences are fun/funny. It feels like a spiritual sequel to Slacker in some ways, but a lot more heady. It's imaginative, at the very least.
Quote from: Dusty Substance on September 27, 2021, 09:14:43 PMWatching Waking Life right now. The jerky animation style took a bit of getting used to but my brain's acclimatised to it. So far, so MUCH better than Dazed And Confused. Can totally see why it's considered a somewhat spiritual follow-up to Slacker.
Quote from: zomgmouse on September 25, 2021, 04:17:47 AMEither way wild to think if such a film were being made now it'd be set in the early 2000s.
Quote from: Inspector Norse on September 27, 2021, 11:15:39 PMHuh weird, Dazed and Confused is one of my absolute favourite film
Quote from: sutin on September 28, 2021, 03:09:53 PMDon't understand this D&C criticism either. Surely the only dislikable character in that movie is Affleck's, and he gets his cumuppance. I rewatched it last week for the first time in years and I still love it as much as I ever did. A perfect coming-of-age movie.

Quote from: holyzombiejesus on September 09, 2021, 01:10:11 PMTape was ok (and my choice if there was a Linklater round on Pointless)
Quote from: Dusty Substance on September 28, 2021, 08:55:29 PMI realise I'm very much in the minority on this one. It's not that it's a terrible film, it's just not a very Dusty Substance type of film. There's not a single character I like, all the stoner conversation stuff is like nails down a blackboard to me (especially Slater's abysmal "Hey man, George Washington smoked weed man" speech), the over-use of period music to set a mood, the paddling scenes, didn't like many of the performances and the "main" character Mitch is absolute flannel.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on October 20, 2021, 07:07:00 PMPink is clearly the main character!
Quote from: Dusty Substance on September 22, 2021, 11:44:27 PMSpurred on by this thread I just rewatched Dazed And Confused for the first time in a decade. Didn't like it the first time round and I think I liked it even less this time. It has some of the worst, most dislikeable characters I've ever seen on-screen. How anyone can or would want to identify with any of them is beyond me. Some of the acting is horrible and it has some terrible cliched dialogue. Fuck me, I never want to hear the phrase "Hey, man" ever again. The soundtrack is great but Linklater relies on it far too much to set a scene or mood when it should be conveyed through acting and dialogue. It wasn't quite as "Hey, it's the '70s" as I remembered, and some of the costumes and shooting technique makes it seem a little more authentic than I remembered. Interesting to see early performances from Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance from Rene Zellwegger.
Quote from: the science eel on October 20, 2021, 07:30:45 PMI started watching it a few nights ago and gave up because I could hardly understand what they were saying.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on October 20, 2021, 07:17:00 PMI'd agree with that, but I think Mitch is the Linklater avatar.
