Richard Linklater on the Process of Making 'Boyhood' and Choosing Ellar Coltrane

18 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" is a remarkable film in many ways. First, it once again solidifies the iconoclastic filmmaker's reputation as a compelling filmmaker, one who often uses time to frame his narratives. Whether it's the narratives that take place over a single day like "Dazed and Confused," or films that age over decades like the "Before Sunrise"/"Before Sunset"/"Before Moonrise" triptych, Linklater shows a remarkable capacity to use cinema to encourage audiences to look at the passing of time.

No other project more overtly demonstrates this than "Boyhood." Shot over a half-dozen years, we literally see the character grow up before our eyes. Much like Michael Apted's "Up" series of docs that trace a group of kids over many years, Linklater's documentary-like tenacity is reason enough to applaud the film.

Yet "Boyhood" is more than mere than just its filming style -- with wonderful, rich performances and an engaging narrative, »

Interview: Director Richard Linklater Kept Going Back to ‘Boyhood’

16 July 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Director Richard Linklater is a great American storyteller. In 2002, he embarked on a filmmaking journey that would be twelve years long, and conceived a fictional tale of a boy as he ages from age six to 18. Using the same actors over all those years, the result is the epic and philosophical “Boyhood.”

The power of “Boyhood” is embraced by the boy’s life cycle – portrayed by Ellar Coltrane through the ages. The ups and downs of his short but eventful existence is experienced as he grows during the 12 years. The basis for his perspective is forged through the difficulties of his estranged parents, two stepfathers and his mother’s dogged determination to keep everything together for him and his sister (portrayed by Richard Linklater’s daughter, Lorelei). Patricia Arquette (Mom) and the venerable Linklater collaborator Ethan Hawke (Dad) are around for the whole ride, and there is a poignancy »

Exclusive Video Interview With The Cast And Director Of Boyhood

12 July 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Richard Linklater has had quite an illustrious career so far, spanning the iconic stoner comedy Dazed And Confused to emotionally touching movies like Before Sunset and Before Midnight, but no project meets the ambition of his latest cinematic triumph - Boyhood. Wanting to capture every essence of adolescence during the maturity of one lucky actor, Linklater met with his cast and crew for a few weeks each year for twelve years and developed a story about one child’s exploration into manhood from the humble beginnings of a wide-eyed toddler. Yes, this is a project over 12 years in the making – and it’s undoubtedly worth the wait.

There’s something about growing with actor Ellar Coltrane and actress Lorelei Linklater (yes, Richard’s daughter) that ensures a strong connective bond, harkening back to our very own childhood experiences. Every phase is captured, from rebellious times to more mature glances of puberty, »

Jon Hamm to Join Richard Linklater's Incredible Mr. Limpet Remake

12 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Mad Men star Jon Hamm is looking to join the remake of the 1964 Don Knotts film, The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Other actors in talks to come on board include Kevin Hart, Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad, and comedy duo Key & Peele. If cast they will join Zach Galifianakis.

The movie is being directed by Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, After Midnight) from a script based on the novel by Theodore Pratt. Warner Bros. has been trying to get this movie made for the last 20 years, and it looks like it's finally coming together. 

The original story followed "an everyman who is transformed into a fish and goes on to fight Nazis." In this new version, Galifianakis is expected to play Larry Limpet, "a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he's turned into a fish, Limpet sets out on an adventure to save his town and the sea world, »

Writer-Director Linklater's Boyhood Is 'Conceptually Briliant'

12 July 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Boyhood’ movie review: Richard Linklater has created ‘conceptually brilliant new film’ (photo: Ellar Coltrane in ‘Boyhood’) Director Richard Linklater once said, “The most unique property of cinema is how it lets you mold time, whether it’s over a long or a very brief period.” Indeed, time — and our relationship to it both philosophically and practically — has been an ongoing theme in Linklater’s work over the course of his now lengthy career, and it is once again at the center of the writer-director’s conceptually brilliant new film, which took more than twelve years to nurture: Boyhood. When we first meet Mason (Ellar Coltrane), he’s six years old and living with his mother (Patricia Arquette) and sister (Lorelei Linklater, the filmmaker’s daughter) in a small town in Texas; his dad (Ethan Hawke) is a better-than-average weekend-warrior of an absentee father. Mason is a quirky kid with an »

The Films of Richard Linklater: Ranked From Best to Worst

11 July 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: Andrew, if you’ll allow me a brief (sort of) digression before we get down to business: A few nights ago, as part of our foolhardy mission to rank the films of Richard Linklater, I watched “Waking Life” for the first time since I’d seen it at a college screening in 2001. Back then, we were both sophomores at USC (though we didn’t know each other at the time), and presumably of the ideal age and mindset to groove on the film’s kaleidoscopic visuals and similarly trippy discourse. I recall having been more bored than seduced at the time, though I’m happy to say that my very different reaction following this second viewing — which began around midnight, all the better to cultivate the optimal bleary-eyed dream state — was enough to move “Waking Life” a few notches up my own list.

At a certain point late into the movie, »

Why Richard Linklater Deserves an Oscar for ‘Boyhood’

11 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even though it’s only July, it’s hard to imagine watching a better-made movie in 2014 than “Boyhood.” Shot in secret over 12 years, director Richard Linklater captures the journey, and struggles, of growing up — his lead actor Ellar Coltrane ages in real time, from 6 to 18 onscreen. No other film has ever been made this way. Coltrane could have bailed from the project once he hit puberty, since even the strictest contract couldn’t keep him on a project for so long, but he stuck it through to the end (along with Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke, who play his parents).

For millennials and movie buffs, Linklater, who is 53, is one of the most influential directors of the arthouse boom of the early ’90s. When I recently interviewed Chris Evans, he said he modeled his upcoming directorial debut, “1:30 Train,” on “Before Sunset.” You could argue that Linklater, who was influenced by the French New Wave, »

'Boyhood' Director Richard Linklater Never Doubted His Ambitious, 12-Year Production

11 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

While Richard Linklater was making "School of Rock," "Bad News Bears," "Before Sunset" and "Bernie," he was also quietly making "Boyhood," a film that's production spanned 12 years. It's an unprecedented experiment, one that's met with unqualified raves as Linklater follows one boy, Mason (newcomer Ellar Coltrane) from age 5 to 18.

Much of the film is inspired by Linklater's own life and he cast Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's divorced parents, and his own daughter, Lorelei, as Mason's sister. All agreed to the unconventional project, which Linklater had mapped out but was never sure exactly where it would go.

The director sat down with Moviefone (while an exhausted Coltrane took a nap in the same room) at the film's Los Angeles junket to discuss how his own daughter wanted to bail on the film, forcing Ethan Hawke to wear Dockers, and waiting to see what kind of kid Mason was »

Forecast: 'Apes' Sequel Swings In to Theaters This Weekend

10 July 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned an estimated $4.1 million from Thursday night shows beginning at 10 p.m. That's a significant improvement on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which earned $1.25 million at midnight.Unfortunately, it doesn't compare favorably to recent releases. That number is less than half of the Thursday night openings for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Godzilla and Spider-Man benefited from 7 p.m. showtimes, though Transformers was essentially in the same position as Apes.Another unflattering comparison: on the same weekend last year, Pacific Rim scored $3.6 million from late Thursday shows. For the weekend, the movie wound up with just $37.3 million.Apes should still be safely over $50 million for the weekend. But the odds of it breaking out to over $75 million now look slim.Forecast: Coming off the slowest Fourth of July in over a decade, the »

Richard Linklater: Writer and Director

9 July 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a bit of an indie A-lister, though far from an unknown. It’s filmmaker Richard Linklater, a writer and director who has managed to consistently do things in a unique way and bring audiences along with him at the same time. As heralded as he already is (especially this week with Boyhood hitting theaters), he still sometimes seems underrated to me. For a man with a pair of Oscar nominations, he still manages to work decidedly outside of the box and still cultivate an audience. Even his studio outings have been memorable. Frankly, Linklater is one of a kind. Linklater has always done things his way, from his fly on the wall debut Slacker to Dazed and Confused to the Before trilogy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight). Throw in Boyhood and you have five near classics from one filmmaker, »

Boyhood Review

8 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Richard Linklater.

Starring:  Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Lorelei Linklater.

Certificate: 12A

Synopsis:  The life of a young man, Mason, from age 5 to age 18.

Boyhood is an ambitious piece of film-making, as it was made over twelve years with the same actors used for every stage. Richard Linklater, the man behind Before Midnight, Before Sunset and Before Sunrise, offers viewers the chance to experience the true journey of boyhood as the star of the film, Ellar Coltrane, grows up before your very eyes.

In the film, Mason (Coltrane) and his family are forced to move a few times, deal with the acrimonious relationship of the divorced parents and new people who come along and join the family. There is the issue of girls to consider when he becomes old enough to care and that first time he tries alcohol and smoking a joint. There are also hilarious cultural references throughout the film, »

Patricia Arquette calls her 12-year 'Boyhood' experience an 'anti-movie'

7 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This Friday is a significant date for the cast and crew of Richard Linklater's "Boyhood." After 12 long years of production on one of the most unique film projects of all time, the film will finally be unleashed on the movie-going public. For Patricia Arquette, the anxiety mostly came at the end of shooting, when she realized this clearly life-altering experience was coming to a close. In the film, she stars as the mother of Mason (Ellar Coltrane), a headstrong woman already dealing with the effects of a broken home at the beginning of the story who is challenged with finding her way through the ups and downs of life as much as her son. The film could just as easily have been called "Motherhood," and indeed, you come away sensing that Arquette delivers the film's stand-out performance. Recently I sat down for lunch with Arquette at Hollywood's Musso & Frank Grill. »

Retrospective: The Films Of Richard Linklater

7 July 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It was just a couple of years ago, around the time of “Bernie," that we first ran our retrospective of the films of Richard Linklater. But in the brief period since, he’s made not one, but two films that feel like they, in fact, mark exactly the kind of caesura that should by rights have us looking back in assessment: Linklater’s last two titles deal in time passed and time passing and have slightly transformed the shape of his filmography, certainly bringing us to a newfound appreciation for his insight and intelligence, even though we were fans before. The first of the two was “Before Midnight,” the third film in the ‘Before’ trilogy which showed us Jesse and Celine a decade on from the events of “Before Sunset,” their new life stage reflected in very different pressures and concerns from those they’d shown before. But the true »

Interview: Richard Linklater Talks 'Boyhood', the Industry and Life's Little Punctuations

7 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Richard Linklater on the set of BoyhoodPhoto: IFC Films If you're not yet familiar with Richard Linklater's new film Boyhood that's something you're going to want to remedy sooner rather than later. Filming began in 2002 when Linklater cast seven-year-old Ellar Coltrane as Mason and began work on a project that would take twelve years to complete. Coltrane stars as Mason as snapshots of the young boy's life were captured each and every year with Ethan Hawke playing his father who, before the film even begins, has divorced his mother (Patricia Arquette). Mason lives with his mother and sister (Richard Linklater's own daughter, Lorelei Linklater) and the film bounces through time as Mason goes from elementary school to his very first day in college. It's a film as unique as they come and another showcase for the writer/director that brought us films such as Dazed and Confused, School of Rock »

Boyhood Movie Review

2 July 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Boyhood Director: Richard Linklater Starring: Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Lorelei Linklater. Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s ‘Boyhood’ is a groundbreaking story on the delicate passage from childhood to adulthood.  The story is seen through the eyes of a boy named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, ‘Boyhood’ depicts the portrait of a veraciously-complex family. Richard Linklater had already demonstrated of having a great take on dissecting the human intermix through time: his stupendous trilogy movies ‘Before Sunrise,’ ‘Before Sunset,’  [ Read More ]

'Boyhood': The boy that grows up before our very eyes

29 June 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Richard Linklater is not a name you often hear bandied about in discussions about major film awards contenders. Though the Texan-born filmmaker has been nominated for two Oscars for screenwriting (shared with his co-writer, Kim Krizan, and stars, Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke for Before Sunset in 2004, and again with Delpy and Hawke for last year’s Before Midnight), he has never been a real front-runner, or ever received a Best Director nomination; nor have his films scooped any top prizes at major international festivals. And while he’s had some popular successes in his 29-year career – including 2003 box-office smash School of Rock and cult classic Dazed and Confused – he’s not exactly what you’d call a household name. »

Richard Linklater on ‘Boyhood,’ the ‘Before’ Trilogy and the Luxury of Time

25 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fittingly enough for a film about a long, unhurried process of discovery, it wasn’t until near the wrap of production that Richard Linklater decided he would call his 16th feature “Boyhood.” That was in the summer of 2013, more than a decade after he and his cast and crew had shot the first frames of their movie about an East Texas kid named Mason Evans Jr. and his journey through childhood and adolescence. Seeking a title that would suggest not only the picture’s narrative scope but also its lengthy shooting history, Linklater settled on “12 Years” — a seemingly perfect choice, at least until the writer-director discovered there was a similarly named, soon-to-be Oscar-winning prestige picture on the horizon.

“I was like, not ‘10 Years a Slave?’ Not ‘15 Years a Slave?’ Are you kidding me?!” Linklater says with a laugh. “I was like, Ok, the world is telling us to stay out of numerical titles. »

Crowdfund This! Canuck Indie A Sunday Kind Of Love Needs Help To Get Over The Finish Line!

18 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Here's a little something intriguing with a Canadian initiative to pair first time feature filmmakers with established producer / mentors to give them the best chance of success with a micro-budget debut. Called the Indiecan 10k Film Initiative, the program started as an open call for submissions from producer Avi Federgreen. Of the nearly 70 submissions received the Indiecan folk winnowed the final selection down to just seven, each of whom is paired with an established mentor and tasked with raising ten thousand dollars to make their first film. Enter A Sunday Kind Of Love, the proposed debut from Georgie Sabbagh.Following in the vein of such films as Before Sunset, Annie Hall, Lost in Translation and Midnight in Paris, A Sunday Kind of Love is...
