Dazed and Confused (1993) …This movie is a blast from the past, literally.  Set in Texas in 1976, it’s the story of the last day of school and one wild night for next year’s seniors of Robert E. Lee High School, and the indoctrination (read: hazing) of the incoming freshmen.  This movie is freakin’ hilarious and presents us to two new-to-us talents, Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey.  With an absolutely awesome soundtrack, this is a slice of life from the seventies, and having lived through that time in a community not so different from the one portrayed, I can tell you it’s pretty spot-on.  Truly funny performances by Joey Lauren Adams, Milla Jovovich, and Parker Posey make this a funny, rock-and-roll, pot-and-beer induced journey into the mid-seventies that’s not to be missed!
