Black and Linklater share a personal history and a philosophy of cinema, and this makes the conversations both intimate and insightful.
An affable, detail-light trundle through Linklater's career.
Considering its subject often enjoys the simple wonder inherent in characters who look into the distance, "Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny" does an extra-fine job of looking back with similarly rich and appreciative curiosity.
I enjoyed it immensely.
While not an earth-shaker, this documentary is an amiable, informative look at a guy who is shaping up to be, yes, one of the major American directors of the last fifty years.
It's shamelessly partial but also warmly pleasurable, partly because Mr. Linklater is an engaging and humble conversationalist who moves easily to the beat of his own soundtrack.
What makes filmmaker Richard Linklater stand out as a subject is his own ambivalence to anything approaching being called a "Master."
At the very least, this will make you want to revisit his back catalogue. It may even prompt you to pick up a camera and make your own film.
Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny will fascinate fans of the director of Boyhood and the Before Sunrise trilogy.
What Black offers, simply but appreciably, is a celebration of one of American cinema's good guys, whose progress we've been lucky indeed to witness.
Poorly made, riding on hyperbole rather than insight.
It's the on-set footage that brings Linklater alive, showing him in complete, Orson Welles-like control while breezily accessible and open.
