Whatever happened to that Waking Life night planned at the lib? Bring it back, this movie made me feel like I was being born and engaged me in a way that spawned a new lease on life and then many a conversation with friends. Linklater is a brilliant director who deserved an academy award either for this movie or for boyhood or for his amazing single-handed revival and longevity-increasing continued adherence to the seventies bowl cut. Truly astounding. Everyone and their mother and their bloviated PETA-baiting pet parakeet should watch this movie. It’ll make you think! And possibly send you over the edge if you’re locked in a self-reflective genius-verging (speaking about an acquaintance here) neuroses of life examination and big question answering. So do be careful! And probably let the parakeet roam around a little more. Right on, Ric!
