Dazed and Confused

Series: Fashion in Film

Thirty years ago, the slacker gift of Richard Linklater’s DAZED AND CONFUSED debuted to the world. It follows a group of rowdy teenagers celebrating their last day of high school in 1976 complete with muscle cars, skin-tight bell bottoms, and feathery hair aplenty. Over the course of the day, we see freshmen being hazed by big bullies (including Ben Affleck as O’Bannion and Parker Posey as Darla), cool kid Randall "Pink" Floyd (Jason London) wrestling with authority, and, of course, Matthew McConaughey delivering his iconic “Alight, alright, alright” line.

This screening is also the ninth anniversary of Hollywood’s Fashion in Film series and will include a preshow segment from the new podcast We Can’t Print This, which launches April 12 with an episode interviewing journalist Melissa Maerz on her book Alright, Alright, Alright: The Oral History of Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused.
