A Little Treat For Fans Of The Movie ‘Dazed and Confused’ [Video]
It was 27 years ago that a small independent film about high school kids celebrating the end of the school year became a cult classic.
I became a big fan of the film, especially it's story arc about the hazing of incoming freshmen, something that happened to me around the same time that the movie was set, 1977.
'Dazed and Confused' launched the careers of actors like Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Rory Cochrane and Parker Posey, among others, and made director Richard Linklater a household name in the film industry.
While surfing the internet for something else entirely, I came across this documentary, done back in 2003, about the making of the movie.
If you're a fan of the film, and never saw this before, I guarantee you'll enjoy the trip back in time to how how this small film about coming of age in a Texas town made an impact on audiences nationwide.
Included is the bittersweet story about the two younger stars of the film, Wiley Wiggins, who played Mitch, and Christin Hinojosa, who played Sabrina, who were literally plucked off the street to play key roles, only to later find out that acting wasn't their life's calling.
