Film Review: Richard Linklater's BoyhoodFilm Reviews Film Vlog FIlms 2014 Must-See Richard Linklater
Richard Linklater's Boyhood has got to be one of the most buzzed about and highly regarded film of this year. After its premiere at Sundance, all social media outlets exploded with excitement and incredulous praise about the grandiose film that was 12 years in the making! I've always loved Linklater's films that continued to tamper with time especially in films like Slacker (1991), Waking Life (2001), and The Before Series (1995-2013).
What made the film such an enthralling movie experience was considering that the film was shot over the course of twelve years and stitched together, Linklater was able to capture the essence, tone, and mood of that specific time period that brings another level of authenticity to a story this intimate and nostalgic. Just the the cue of the greatest hits of that year, brought me warm and fuzzy feelings of that time period. Boyhood is definitely going to be on everyone's top list this year as well as going down in the history of film as a piece of art that challenged the boundaries of cinema. You go Linklater!
