REVIEW | Boyhood

‘There aren’t many filmmakers that have the patience of Richard Linklater. But patience is only part of what makes his films so magical; Linklater’s main strength is his extraordinary vision. The fact that a collaborative undertaking such as Boyhood was seen out to its end is a breathtaking example of that vision, during which the Texan director would routinely reassemble his cast over a span of twelve years, filming the growth of not just his characters but his actors and actresses. But would such lofty ambition bear fruit? Who has time to do this in today’s filmmaking climate?’

Check out my review of Boyhood, the new Richard Linklater movie, at The Quietus (click quote above or image below).
