Via Esquire.com. it doesn't matter if you watched it in the 90's or today, "Dazed and Confused" perfectly captured teenage life before Apple products.
With a stacked cast full of young Hollywood hopefuls featuring three future Oscar winners, Ben Affleck, Mathew (awright,awright,awright) McConaughey, and Renée Zellweger, and a kickass soundtrack of Alice Cooper, Foghat and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dazed is set on the last day of the school year in 1976, and follows a group of teenagers—members of the rising senior and freshmen classes—as they cruise around the sprawling suburbs of Austin, Texas. Each character has his or her own story and conflict: Jason London's Pink has the chance to be the star quarterback in the fall, if only he can focus on his athleticism instead of beer and weed; Ben Affleck's O'Bannion flunked his senior year and has to repeat it (possibly so he can have a second shot at ruling the school); Wiley Wiggins's Mitch Kramer wants to hang out with the cool, older kids, even if that puts him in danger of O'Bannion's violent hazing; Parker Posey's Darla simply wants to terrorize the incoming freshmen girls to prop up her own popularity. And then there's Matthew McConaughey's Wooderson, who graduated from Lee High School years ago but remains stuck in a permanent adolescence, partying with the kids years younger than him.
It's one of those movies that if you come across it channel surfing, you have to stop and watch.
