Like George Lucas' American Graffiti, Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused is an affectionate look at the youth culture of a bygone era. While Lucas took aim at the conservative 1950s, Linklater jumps ahead a generation to the bicentennial year of 1976 to celebrate the joys of beer blasts, pot smoking and Frampton Comes Alive. Set on the last day of the academic year, the film follows the random activities of a sprawling group of Texas high schoolers as they celebrate the arrival of summer, their paths variously intersecting at a freshman hazing, a local pool parlor and finally at a keg party.

This is awesome movie, with great plot and conflicts. The most memorable scene is right from the start, the intro for Sweet Emotion is being played and as the snare kicks in you see that hot GTO Judge slowly workin it's way through the school parking lot while " Dazed and Confused" pops up on the scene. It's basically everything any teenager graduating high school wish they can do now. Now laws are uptight and the dumbest issues are being debated, where did the fun go? From Burning out, hot muscle cars, draggin, kegs, girls, blunts, and not caring..
This movie was so awesome. It was really about a normal High School student¿s life. The students hang out with friends and mess with younger kids and have parties. They drink, smoke, and just chill with their friends. This movie was just so great I can¿t even think of a word that could really describe it except, THE BEST MOVIE EVER! Sine I¿m a high school student I felt I could relate to the movie and the events that take place. The kids in the movie would back each other up and would do stuff they shouldn¿t be doing but that¿s what high school is about, friends. This movie is mostly based on friendship. Yeah the kids smoked a lot and drank a lot but they were always with each other and had each other¿s backs. This was a great movie and I would recommend it to parents that didn¿t see it and students that haven¿t seen it yet either.
This movie is awesome on many levels. Not only does it have a great script, performances, and direction, but it is also one of the most successful movies ever at completely immersing you in the world it depicts. Watching this film, you really catch the *feeling* of being a kid growing up in the 70's. I don't know how anyone that gives this a chance wouldn't enjoy it. Basically just a cool movie that is very well-done.
Dazed and Confused is a great look back at the reckless youth of America. With numerous celebrities before their prime,it is original, funny, and above all entertaining.
Dazed is one of the best burnout movies of all time.... it has everything you want, girls.. drugs... beer... and freedoms of being a teen again... no responsiblity, just chilin and smoking up all day.... priceless... if you don't have this and you are the type of person who loves to get above the clouds w/ your friends,,, this is difenetly the movie for you..... peace
For anyone seeking adolescence nostalgia...this is it!! The crazy, magical, narcissistic, exciting, never to be experienced again time of your life is brought comically alive in this classic film of teenage...I was going to say angst, but no...this is refreshingly positive. Any angst is quickly defused and forgotten, for the budding young men and women here have discovered all the wonderful things life has to offer. So they enjoy their world! Of course, their recreational activities likely has something to do with. Excellent acting that captures the essence of small town life.
Oh my gosh. I thought it was going to be a stupid movie I watched on HBO at like 3 in the morning. But, wow great acting! There are some famous A-List stars in this movie (I was surprised) they have Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck. The plot is really good it's the end of the school year and Juniors are going to party. And O' Bannon and his Junior posse are going to paddle the butts off the future Freshmen. Except for one lucky Freshman who meets Pink gets to go to the best Senior kegger of the year. It's full of high people, too And yet satisfying.
This movie is a must see for anyone who was a teen in the 1970's. It really took me back. It had all the things I remember from the music to the clothes to the cars. All it was missing was the CB radio. The acting was great and the cast was incredible. This film is definitely one to add to your movie collection.
Dazed and confused has to be the best movie ever made. it reminds me of my friends parting mad crazy. But this movie and awesome.
