Overview

From Slacker (1991) to The School of Rock (2003), from Before Sunrise (1995) to Before Sunset (2004), from the walking and talking of his no/low-budget American independent films to conversing with the philosophical traditions of the European art house, Richard Linklater's films are some of the most critical, political, and spiritual achievements of contemporary world cinema. Examinations of Linklater's collaborative working practices and deployment of rotoscoping and innovative distribution strategies all feature in this book, which aspires to walk and talk with the filmmaker and his films. Informed by a series of original interviews with the artist, in both his hometown and frequent film location of Austin, Texas, this study of the director who made Dazed and Confused (1993), A Scanner Darkly (2006), and Bernie (2011) explores the theoretical, practical, contextual, and metaphysical elements of these works along with his documentaries and side-projects and finds fanciful lives and lucid dreams have as much to do with his work as generally alternative notions of America, contemporary society, cinema, and time.

Editorial Reviews

Paul Cooke

At last, a comprehensive study of one of America's most important independent filmmakers. This hugely readable and highly nuanced book reveals the sophisticated approach to filmmaking that underpins the apparent casualness of Linklater's 'slacker' aesthetic.

Ann Marie Stock

A study as compelling and nuanced as Linklater's films. With remarkable insight, this volume provides provocative reflections on industry and indie filmmaking practices by exploring the work of this innovative filmmaker.

Choice
