Everybody Wants Some!!

Can there be any doubt by now that Richard Linklater is Americas most relaxed and quietly ambitious filmmaker? After all but reinventing the coming-of-age movie with his 12-years-in-the-making Boyhood& the director now serves up a deceptively simple comedy. Everybody Wants Some!! is about nothing more (or less) than the weekend shenanigans that transpire on a Texas college campus in August 1980. The schools rowdy baseball team returns, welcoming freshman pitcher Jake (Blake Jenner, a clear-eyed find) with the kind of genial hazing  fuck-with-ery, the newbie calls it  that brings to mind Linklaters Dazed and Confused (NZIFF94). Bongs will be lit. Pink Floyd will be discussed.
