quirky and hilarious. nostalgic even if you have no idea what the teenage life in America of 1976 was like, because it smells like universal teen spirit. would love to giggle and marvel a bit more at the Intellectual Trio dialogues, philosophical and silly at the same time - that is, truly Linklaterian. anyway, D&C is a 100-minute purest joy of youth drive and devil-may-carishness.
A pleasure trove of nostalgia, milieu, and high school social angst. In the same vein as George Lucas's American Graffiti, Dazed and Confused is a love letter to a specific time and place that resonates through its universal understanding of growth and youth. A beautiful collage of coming of age vignettes that transcends it's time and place. If you went to school in '76 or '06, this will find a way into your heart.
