The imagery and luxurious auditory landscape of Richard Linklater's '70s-set masterpiece retains on this Criterion Blu-ray a potency that hits like a freshly lit, well-rolled joint.

The backbone to it all is the ritual torch-passing that allowed incoming seniors to abuse poor freshmen, an alarmingly frank touch that avoids the one-sided sentimentality of an American Graffiti-style pastiche.

A film that practically demands repeat viewings.

The 2-disc Criterion edition includes deleted scenes, audition tapes, interviews and behind the scenes, but the most entertaining features are Linklater's critical view of Universal and Kahane Corn's 1-hour docu of the 10-year-reunion of the cast.

What becomes more obvious upon multiple viewings is that it does actually have a story to tell, even if the ride there is as slow as in Foghat's '70s rock classic.

Kind of like a '70s update of American Graffiti - but with infinitely cooler music...
