American Graffiti

American Graffiti

genre-wise this is right up my alley—it’s so clear where the likes of Linklater and Crowe drew inspiration. but i think what makes me love Dazed and Confused and Say Anything are the characters, and something about American Grafitti’s never quite grabbed me. all of the beats were there—but the quiet moments never really resonated, and the little town you either escape or die in never felt like more than a backdrop... the soundtrack was A+ tho
