Richard Linklater and Matthew McConaughey

Considering their relaxed, easygoing personas, why wouldn't a conversation between longtime friends Richard Linklater and Matthew McConaughey be genial and delightful? Sitting down for Interview Magazine, the director and actor — who have collaborated on "Dazed and Confused," "The Newton Boys," and, most recently, "Bernie" — start off discussing critics' fave "Boyhood," from the film’s novel approach to time to doing promo duties, and move on to the story of Linklater's Austin ranch burning down. 

Check out TOH's interviews with Linklater, Ethan Hawke, Eller Coltrane and potential Best Actress nominee Patricia Arquette as well as this scene clip from "Boyhood" — which may seem small, but is one of the film’s bigger dramatic moments. This isn't the kind of movie that burns down a ranch.
