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.

Tape stars Uma Thurman, Ethan Hawke, and Robert Sean Leonard as old high school friends who find themselves in a hotel room hashing out a dark incident from their past. (86 mins., video) Loosely based on Eric Schlosser’s best-seller, Fast Food Nation follows a marketing executive (Greg Kinnear) for a national burger chain who discovers his company’s product contains high levels of contamination. In trying to confirm the potential scandal, he is confronted with every unsavory aspect of the fast food industry. Also with Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, and Kris Kristofferson. (113 mins., 35mm)
