It's the last day of school at a high school in a small town in Texas in 1976. The upperclassmen are hazing the incoming freshmen, and everyone is trying to get stoned, drunk, or laid, even the football players that signed a pledge not to.Written by

Rory Cochrane (Slater) wore a long-hair wig in this movie. He said that he'd never had long hair before and that, despite the "cosmopolitan" atmosphere of Austin, Texas, he still got a lot of strange looks from people outside of the set. See more »
The motorcyclist's shirt. While a similar design was used later by The Misfits, the design (if indeed it's the same skull) ultimately comes from the movie The Crimson Ghost. See more »

Directed by Richard Linklater.
"Dazed and Confused" is one of the best teen films ever made, and for many reasons. It stands the test of it's time, along with George Lucas' "American Graffiti" and John Landis' "Animal House". It shows the highs and lows of partying, friendship, and drugs. The plot is about upcoming seniors and freshmen in a Texas town on the full last day of School in 1976. The characters are very likable in this, well, at least most of them. Richard Linklater gives a great independent direction. This isn't a film that encourages kids to do drugs, but it shows a true portrayal of teenagers in a America, in a very fun way. "Dazed and Confused" is one of my all-time favorite films, and one that I can watch over and over again. Well done.
