Synopsis

America, 1976. The last day of school. Bongs blaze, bell-bottoms ring, and rock and roll rocks. Among the best teen films ever made, Dazed and Confused eavesdrops on a group of seniors-to-be and incoming freshmen. A launching pad for a number of future stars, the first studio effort by Richard Linklater also features endlessly quotable dialogue and a blasting, stadium-ready soundtrack. Sidestepping nostalgia, Dazed and Confused is less about “the best years of our lives” than the boredom, angst, and excitement of teenagers waiting . . . for something to happen.

The Criterion Collection now has over twenty 4k Blu-ray titles to date, with Jane Campion’s Oscar-winning drama The Power of the Dog (2021) and Spike Lee’s Malcolm X (1992) both arriving this month.
