21 Years: Richard Linklater

Your mileage may vary depending on how much you want to hear other people gush about and sound like they're ready to squeeze the hell out of Richard Linklater when they see him. All of this being in the style of a overlong promotional special feature with nothing of value besides clips of Linklater films that you've likely already seen. Those clips being ruined by the people talking over them about senseless shit.

I did not want that at all, but that's what I got.

It definitely feels like this was made on the whim immediately when Boyhood found some success. Purely capitalizing.

Also, no, Linklater himself is NOWHERE on this, which REALLY makes me believe this was intended as a cash grab. Scummy.
