Watch: Fun First Trailer for '21 Years: Richard Linklater' Documentary
"There's no slacker in that slacker!" We've been patiently waiting for this one. There's a documentary about filmmaker Richard Linklater being released this fall (in November) titled simply 21 Years: Richard Linklater, looking back at the first 21 years in his directing career - from Slacker to Boyhood. The doc features interviews with everyone from Matthew McConaughey to Jack Black to Jason Reitman to Kevin Smith, and many of them pop up in this trailer. It's perhaps mere coincidence that Linklater seems to be having a landmark year, with Boyhood in theaters now, Before Midnight still getting love, and all of this acclaim on top of it. I'm a huge fan of Linklater and have been anxiously awaiting this - it looks like fun.
Here's the first trailer for Michael Dunaway & Tara Wood's 21 Years: Richard Linklater, via YouTube:
See the official poster here. "It's been said that the first 21 years defines the career of an artist. Few directors have single-handedly shaken up the film establishment like the godfather of indie, Richard Linklater. From the groundbreaking Slacker to his innovative Boyhood, Linklater has reached the 21-year mark and has unapologetically carved his signature into American pop culture." We first wrote about this doc earlier this summer, thankfully in theaters soon. "For a man who became famous for celebrating the cool and casual, Linklater emerges as a surprisingly strategic and visionary director who has already established a legacy and perfected a style that can't be denied." 21 Years: Richard Linklater hits theaters + VOD on November 7th.
