Featured Film:

Everybody Wants Some!! at the Sundance and the Lincoln Square

Richard Linklater’s latest film, a sequel in all but name to his 1993 masterpiece dazed and Confused opens this week at the Sundance Cinemas in the U-District and the Cinemark Lincoln Square in Bellevue. The film has dramatically split the staff here, with Mike finding it crude and obnoxious while I think it’s one of Linklater’s very best, a delightful and insightful look at a subculture that, while maintaining a frustratingly dominant position in the culture at large (though less so now than in 1980, when the film is set), is nonetheless often misunderstood. Check it out for yourself and see if it earns those exclamation marks.
