My excellent friend Anners recently did a “shag or gag” post about Jason London, who starred in the Best Movie Ever, Dazed And Confused.
Have I ever told you how much I love that movie? For one thing, I might be one of the few people in the world who actually has good memories of the 70’s. Or any memories of the 70’s for that matter, although most of my memories of the summer of 76 involve Highlights magazine. Besides, what can be better than being a teenager when it’s the last day of school? Nothing, that’s what.
I saw this movie 4 or 5 times in the theater and countless times on video and cable. It was years before I realized that Wooderson was Matthew McCanaughey, and years after that before I realized that O’Banion was Ben Affleck. Oh well.
Here’s the trailer. If you haven’t seen this movie stop what you’re doing and go see it. Now.
