""Dazed and Confused" is a great movie, one you will want to watch again and again!
If you were in junior high (middle school) or high school in the 1970s, you will be able to re-live that era through this movie.
And this movie is also great for people who were either too young, or too old to be a student in the 1970s, so they, too, can get a taste of what life was like as a teenager in the '70s.
While I was not familiar with the "initiation" rituals being done to incoming freshmen, the events and scenarios of the rest of the film rang true.
This film gives a good all-around look at the different types of groups we all remember back in school.....the jocks, the pot-heads, the intellectuals, etc.
One character in the movie is able to move seamlessly throughout the different groups, and while this movie is an ensemble effort, Randall "Pink" Floyd seems to be the main character throughout this movie.
This movie was made in the 1990's, but they did a fantastic job of depicting school-life back in the mid-70s.
As you continue to watch the movie again and again, you will inevitably have fun repeating the key lines in this movie....
"Check ya later!", "That's why I love those high school girls, man. I get older, and they stay the same age!", and "If these are the best years of my life, remind me to kill myself.", and other memorable lines.
Get this movie,and re-live that era that was such a brief time in your life, but the memories of which will always be with you!
P.S. The music in this movie is GREAT!
