Richard Linklater

Last night it was Birdman that took home Best Picture at the 87th Academy Awards. The film from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is certainly deserving of praise and reward, but there's part of me that thinks Boyhood will be the film that stands the test of time a little better. Even though Richard Linklater went home empty-handed last night, he delivered a film that already means a lot to many people. It's a touching story, and a grand achievement in filmmaking. And editor Joel Walden wanted to pay tribute to Linklater and his whole filmography, which includes Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise and more. Watch it!

Here's the career retrospective Richard Linklater - The Works by Joel Walden (via The Playlist):

Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his older sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), learn to face the realities of growing up, while their divorced parents cope with the ongoing challenges of parenting in an ever-evolving landscape. Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Before Sunrise, Bernie) directs the film, using the same actors, including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the Mason's parents, over 11 years of production. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and the film is already available on Blu-Ray & DVD now.
