Linklater Symposium

I’ve been writing about Richard Linklater quite often lately. Like many reviewers, I really liked Before Sunset, and Linklater is one of the few filmmakers whose films I can watch multiple times. In fact, I have an annual tradition of watching his Dazed and Confused every school year after the first day of class, even though I find Ben Affleck’s presence in the film rather painful.

So, I’ll no doubt find mysef spending most of an afternoon reading the Summer 2004 issue of reverse shot, which is devoted to Linklater’s career, with an interview, four reviews of Sunset, and essays on each of Linklater’s films. Thanks to the cinetrix for a great find.

    I have to disagree with you on that one. That is Ben Affleck’s best role EVER, except maybe for his turn as the Fashionable Male in Mallrats.

    I agree with you. It *is* his best role, but he still bugs me when I watch that movie. Surely there was some other out-of-work actor hanging out in Austin who could have played that role….
