Cinebad’s review published on Letterboxd:
Despite this film being based in the 70s in high school, it’s remarkable how realistic the teenage life felt in it. Richard Linklater’s biggest strength as a director might be that he knows how to capture memories onto a screen you didn’t know you had. This is best shown in boyhood, the before trilogy, and of course Dazed and Confused. The plot is not that important in Dazed and Confused. It’s about characters. It’s about how it makes you feel. Movies are supposed to replicate real human life and emotion. Dazed and Confused is one of the best to do it. The cinematography is also one of the best of the 90s, easily. You just keep on livin man. L-I-V-I-N.
