Nothing much happens really. Just two guys having a long conversation about their experiences and the nature of life.

6. Slacker:

Directed by: Richard Linklater

Slacker follows the oddballs and misfits on a normal day in Austin, Texas. The movie focusses on a character for not more than a few minutes, and then picks someone from the scene and continues with them.

Directed by: Kevin Smith

While the movie focusses mainly on a day spent in the lives of two convenience store clerks, it introduces several interesting characters, Jay and Silent Bob, Randal and Dante who also reprised their roles in many other Kevin Smith’s movies.

3. The Breakfast Club:

Directed by: John Hughes

The movie speaks the truth for every teenage student, the struggles one has to go through, how one is ‘labelled’ by others, but as it turns out everyone has a lot more in common. The Breakfast Club is without a doubt one of John Hughes’ greatest movies.

2. Dazed and Confused:

no2 dazedandconfused

Directed by: Richard Linklater

More pot than plot, really awesome soundtrack, and a large ensemble cast which included Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck (who weren’t stars yet at that time), Dazed and Confused is one of the most entertaining high school movie out there.

1. Boyhood:

no1 boyhood

Directed by: Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater doesn’t seem to care much about a plot in his movies. But that’s not a problem, not when he can make exceptional movies like Boyhood which we can easily relate to. Interesting thing is the production of the movie started with an incomplete script. Linklater developed the script throughout the production course of 12 years. All the major actors also used to be involved in the development and Linklater incorporated their actual life experiences into their characters.
