Making Dazed

Making Dazed

From this week’s Austin American-Statesman:

2003 marked the 10th anniversary of Richard Linklater’s enduringly great Dazed and Confused, and the film’s hometown – Austin – partied in appropriate manner with a thronged anniversary soiree thrown by the Austin Film Society. Having the cast and producers in town for the bash made it easy to film all the key players in one place, and that’s what AMC did for the new doc Making Dazed, premiering at 9 p.m. Sunday on cable channel 63. Shot at Linklater’s bucolic home outside Austin, the fun, illuminating program includes behind-the-scenes footage of a shaggy-haired Linklater at work in 1992 and new interviews with actors whose careers were launched by the movie: Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey, Ben Affleck and Adam Goldberg. Hear about the passion, the struggles and the ’70s wigs in this festive slice of Austin movie lore. And keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming deluxe DVD of Dazed and Confused from Criterion. – Chris Garcia
