Director: Richard Linklater. Cast: Blake Jenner, Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, Zoey Deutch. 117 min. Rated R. Comedy.
Dazed & Confused was the last days of high-school; this is a few days in 1980 before college. Both Linklater films have no story at all, both merely project powerfully nostalgic feelings of a bygone era, both boast immortal songs from that era, and like D&C, EWS will launch its no-name actors into stardom. Character mannerisms remind of a time when people didn't know what "gay" was, and recreating 70s hairstyle, clothes, cars, dance moves, pocket video games, soda cans, architecture, ... must have been production design hell. But I still wouldn't have minded just a teeny weeny bit of story.
