DP/30: Boyhood, Richard Linklater

  • Published on Jul 1, 2014
  • Richard Linklater is one of the most beloved filmmakers of his generation. He finds ways of bringing magic out his actors, whether in small parts or leads. And he tells unexpected stories. None more unexpected than Boyhood, which he made over the course of 13 years, 12 of it in a couple weeks of production each year. He talks to David Poland about the film, the process, and a life making movies.

    As great as it is to watch and hear Linklater talk and explain everything, I cant help but get really annoyed with the sound quality of the interview!

    It was the best and most thoughtful film I have seen and at my age, I have seen a lot of film.

    Based on watching most of the interviews during the promotion of Boyhood, I must say that Richard Linklater looks like one of the most down-to-earth people I've seen. The fact that the movie caters to us college people with the music and the relateable events that happened during our childhood through our adolescent years makes Boyhood so precious to me. I really wish it won Best Picture and Best Director.

    Lady's and gentlemen, I give you the most critically overrated director of our generation. I think Terrence Malick is going to have competition in the overpraised pretentious filmmaker hall of fame in the coming decades.

      @Raoulgm "What if I made you repeat yourself?" Read the comments I wrote before. How old are you, twelve? And the line of thought "Tarantino and Fincher are great directors, whether you like their films or not" is also childish. It's your opinion. Others, like myself, have a different opinion. And I already explained why I don't like most of their films.

      @MARCELO ARIAS SOUTO What if I made you repeat yourself? Saying that is kind of pointless because you can do... next to nothing. Anyway, that's fine. You don't have to like them. They are great directors thought, whether you like their films or not. Especially Fincher, but that's just my opinion. Others are available.

      That's what I think. And I'm not being arbitrary. I already wrote many long comments, and I gave a lot of well-argued ideas to explain why I don't like Tarantino and Fincher. Don't make me repeat myself.

      @MARCELO ARIAS SOUTO Woah, woah, woah... I love Linklater, but you can't shit on Fincher or Tarantino or PTA... They're completely different styles. Linklater is as good as achieving his goal the same way Fincher is as good as completing his. They can't be painted with the same brush.

    Richard Linklater could have "Sold Out" to Big Hollywood years ago. Never has. Linklater's courage to go his own way, on his own terms, with relatively small budgets, and to keep coming up with truly original premises time and time again, this self-taught filmmaker who never went to film school is a true inspiration to us all.

      After more than 20 years of career, Linklater is finally getting the recognition he deserves for being the most serious, humane and creative American filmmaker of his generation. I think he was more appreciated outside of the United States than in his own country.
