Totally off-topic and probably written too casually …

I am ridiculously excited about going to a movie tomorrow.


” The life of a young man, Mason, from age 5 to age 18.”

We caught the trailer for Boyhood by Richard Linklater, starring Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke. while we we watching TV. This film was made over the course of 12 years!! It is not a documentary, it’s a story about a family from the perspective of a boy over the years as he grows up from five to eighteen.

This concept just blows me away. I’ve been reading up on it a little and the critics and test audiences are calling it one of the best films ever made.

It opens tomorrow in the art houses, but I’m betting it will make the leap to mainstream cinemas if it’s as good as they say. I’ll let you know what I think tomorrow night.

Check out the 99% critics rating / 92% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

I can’t believe I didn’t know this was out there and coming.

    I love Linklater’s work – especially his slice of life stuff ( check out Bernie if you havent seen it… I think Jack Black was amazing … oscar worthy! ) He captures especially southern life wonderfully … I am looking forward to seeing this!

  4. I do not think I knew about this. Fascinating!! Can’t wait!
