Bad News Bears

(Richard Linklater, 2005)

Retrospective: Richard Linklater

On the occasion of the release of Boyhood—a film that many are already calling his masterpiece—we revisit the career of the revered American independent director Richard Linklater, picking up where a previous Wexner Center retrospective left off in 2000. Linklater has continued the often-audacious formal gestures found in his early films, such as Slacker (1991) and Dazed and Confused (1993), in such subsequent films as Tape, Boyhood, his Before trilogy (which we’re screening in full). He has also directed what quickly became an all-ages classic, School of Rock, along with a handful of other films that display his risk-taking and versatility. We’re honored to present this second retrospective of one our greatest directors.

Linklater’s update of the 1976 comedy Bad News Bears stars Billy Bob Thornton as Buttermaker, a washed-up, alcoholic, former minor-league baseball player who coaches a team of hapless Little Leaguers into a squad that challenges for the championship. Also with Greg Kinnear and Marcia Gay Harden. The film is rated PG-13. (113 mins., 35mm)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
