Aidan’s review published on Letterboxd:
I loved this way more than I was expecting!
This was such an authentic and engaging high school movie that didn't have me bored for a second. The minor interactions about their futures along with the typical hazing rituals gave so much life to the characters, and it was just really entertaining throughout. Linklater always uses improvisation as a way to bring more depth and realism into his characters instead of a way to just be lazy, and I've always appreciated him for that.
I'm also so glad I got to hear Matthew McConaughey say "Alright Alright Alright" and some of the other famous quotes from this film...
