The teenage wasteland, 1976-style, of Dazed and Confused is smack-dab between The Brady Bunch and Children of the Damned , and it's a scary, if sometimes giddily amusing, place to visit.

Seriously funny, and shorn of any hint of nostalgia or wish-fulfilment, this is pretty much where it's at.

A better-than-average teen movie but not much more, at least if you aren't a member of Linklater's generation.

Dazed and Confused has an enjoyably playful spirit, one that amply compensates for its lack of structure.

The ultimate party movie -- loud, crude, socially irresponsible and totally irresistible.

Succeeds on its own terms and reflects American culture so well, it becomes part of it.

This is light entertainment -- nothing groundbreaking or even especially noteworthy.

The film's real inspiration, I think, is to depict some high school kids from the 1970s with such unblinking attention that we will realize how romanticized most movie teenagers are.

Once every decade or so, a movie captures the hormone-drenched, fashion- crazed, pop-song-driven rituals of American youth culture with such loving authenticity that it comes to seem a kind of anthem.
