Enjoy an Hour-Long Interview With Richard Linklater From 1995

In the winter of 1995 Richard Linklater’s transcontinental love trilogy premiered with the eternally perfect Before Sunrise, breaking hearts everywhere. And since, that film and it’s following Before Sunset and Before Midnight have played out as the epitome of rare requited love thwarted by time and space. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again that when you watch these films, for all the tears you cannot help but shed, you’re always left with the pangs of hopefulness. It excites something in you and tickles your heart to know that somewhere on a tram in Europe, your ideal soulmate could be pensively starring out a window wondering if there’s something he’s missing.

But before those, there was Linklater’s now beloved Dazed and Confused and Slacker. And in the video below from 1995, you can see watch the director in an hour long interview in which he talks philosophy, independent cinema, youth, and more. Enjoy.
