Dazed and Confused
(1993) Jason London, Wiley Wiggins, Matthew McConaughey. Like George Lucas' American Graffiti, Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused is an affectionate look at the youth culture of a bygone era. The film is based in the year 1976 and highlights the generation’s passions for drinking beer, pot smoking and Frampton Comes Alive. Set on the last day of the academic year, the film follows the random activities of a sprawling group of Texas high- schoolers as they celebrate the arrival of summer, their paths variously intersecting at a freshmen hazing, a local pool parlor and finally at a keg party.
