Dazed and Confused

It was the best day of their lives.

Tracking a group of Texas teenagers as the 1976 school year winds down, director Richard Linklater helped launched careers while defining introspective comedy for a generation.

The film is all about the journey — one long, mellow, puff-puff-pass of a trip.

Lives intersect, big decisions (at least in the moment) are made, and everyone contemplates their place in the bigger universe outside their small-town setting.

You got Affleck and Milla, Parker Posey and Joey Lauren Adams, and, as the cherry on top of the sundae, McConaughey at his most McConaughey.

Alright, alright, alright.
