Dazed and Confused
Saw this movie for the first time since college, which -- amazingly -- was just a year or two after it first came out.
Having just seen Cinema Paradiso it's easy to connect some of the nostalgia themes from here to there. This one is sentimental as a kind of high school highlight reel. That's what makes it such a great film to watch with friends while reliving your own versions of the jock, stoner, etc.
Have to say though that it works in that context much better than straight-on. Stories make movies more gripping.Posted by amol at October 8, 2005 08:17 PM
