RICHARD LINKLATER
(1960 - ), American

Image

"Richard Linklater's films constitute an intelligent reconfiguration of the 'youth movie' for a generation torn between self-conscious cultural savvy and the time-honoured desire to connect...Linklater homes in on a uniformly garrulous generation's fumbling stabs at communication under the weight of solipsism and endless theorising, the loose-looking sprawl of his films belied by their emotional acuity and seemingly effortless narrative economy."
- Contemporary North American Film Directors

Updated.

For me probably the key American auteur of the 90s. I find his complete underration (perhaps due to his largely subpar work of recent years?) on this board pretty shameful. I'd take the trilogy of Slacker, Dazed and Confused, and Before Sunrise over PTA's run for sure.

Might even be an orange, with the ridiculous amount of acclaim it's getting. Totally deserved, by the way.
