Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
With the grace of a surreptitious curveball and the ease of a perfect pop song, Linklater reveals one of the great secrets of life: to have everything is impossible, but to get some is to have everything.
Richard Linklater follows his highly acclaimed films Boyhood and Before Midnight with a pure delight, this “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused. Set in the world of 1980s college life, Everybody Wants Some!! follows a group of friends navigating their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Everybody Wants Some!! captures the essence of all sorts of youthful desires, both those that are easily identifiable and the more aching, unnameable kind.
“Linklater’s most sustained comic bliss-out,” raved Justin Chang (Variety). “Linklater indulges his characters’ antics with such wild, free-flowing affection that you might miss the thoughtful undertow of this delightful movie: Few filmmakers have so fully embraced the bittersweet joy of living in the moment—one that’s all the more glorious because it fades so soon.”
“Leave it to Richard Linklater to create a nonstop party that keeps ringing undertones of what happens when the party’s over.”View more
