This week marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Richard Linklater's seminal "Dazed and Confused," a movie that celebrated that sweet spot in between adolescence and adulthood, the super sounds of the '70s, and of course, marijuana.

It's also something that makes any number of the characters giggle uncontrollably. There's something beautiful, transcendent almost, about the weed-smoking in "Dazed and Confused," especially as the movie concludes with a sunrise toke on the high school football field. It also got us to thinking about ten of the very best, like, stoner movies man!

Despite his status as something of an indie auteur, Richard Linklater is reassuringly populist in his thinking about movies, particularly when it comes to sequels.
