Party at the moon tower! Life was simpler back in 1976, when your biggest priority was acquiring Aerosmith tickets and your biggest concern was the impending paddling that might come from a power hungry rising senior. Richard Linklater’s 1993 film Dazed and Confused chronicles less than 24 hours in a tiny Texas town, through the eyes of the various social stratospheres of the local high school. Despite consisting of a mostly unknown cast (including future Oscar winners) the film has become a cult classic, beloved by those who too believe that the best philosophy is just to keep L-I-V-I-N.
Over 20 years ago, Randall “Pink” Floyd and friends rejected the proposed tyrannical structure their football coaches and high school administrators tried to put into place, in exchange for drinking warm beer from a keg, and, yes, getting high. To celebrate, take a look at how those most closely involved with the film have fared since its release.
