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.
