VIDEO ESSAY: From SLACKER to BOYHOOD: Cinematography in the films of Richard Linklater

You can feel the heat in the Austin of "Slacker"; you can smell the chalkdust in "School of Rock"; you can feel the night breeze in "Dazed and Confused." And yet the camera here isn’t the aggressive, probing presence of a Scorsese or an Allen or a Lynch.

Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD Recreates the Experience of Reading

An Open Letter to Richard Linklater: Let Jesse and Celine Separate. Preserve Cinéma Vérité.

If you want to make a movie that reflects the times we live in, Mr. Linklater, make a movie in which no one is forced to spend a lifetime with someone they see as an obstacle or an albatross rather than a partner. One wonderful day in Vienna, and another wonderful day in Paris, do not a lifetime make.
