WAKING LIFE
2001, Fox Searchlight Pictures, 99 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

Director Richard Linklater filmed his actors and then rotoscoped the footage to produce this surreal and cerebral animated wonder. Philosophical conversations between a young man (Wiley Wiggins) and the unusual characters he encounters cause him to question whether he is actually asleep or awake; among the actors, artists and thinkers heard here are Steven Soderbergh, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. “A work of cinematic art in which form and structure pursues the logic-defying (parallel) subjects of dreaming and moviegoing.” - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly


DAZED AND CONFUSED
1993, Gramercy Pictures, 102 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

The last day of class at a Texas high school in 1976 brings together jocks, nerds and stoners in this cult teen comedy set to a classic rock soundtrack. Jason London, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich and Renée Zellweger are among the students gearing up for the summer; Matthew McConaughey is unforgettable as the older guy who still parties with the kids.
