80. Richard Linklater

January 27th, 2015

In the first of what will become a monthly feature, this episode finds Matt and Ed discussing the career of director Richard Linklater, the veteran of American independent cinema who is currently the toast of the town thanks to the critical and commercial success of Boyhood.

To add a structure to this episode and all future artist profiles, the boys have picked five of Linklater's films to focus on, each of which falls into a specific category: Breakthrough, Most Successful, Oddity, Dud and Crowning Achievement. That means that they get to talk about the gentle pleasure of watching Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy walk around lovely locations and the more exuberant sight of Jack Black leading a rock and roll rebellion.
Please feel free to suggest artists you'd like us to profile in the future.
