As a fan of Richard Linklater I was pumped to finally get a chance to view Boyhood back in July. Since then, I have kept my thoughts regarding the film to myself. However, with the talk of Oscar buzz, it's time to go public.
For every flaw I struggled to find while I watched it with wide, wonder-filled eyes, each flaw was clearly justified. The only thing that bothers me is that if there is a sequel it will take at least 12 years before I get to see it.
It's possible that years from today historians will look back at this film and use the main character, Mason, as the prototypical example of one of the last people to be born into a world not dominated by social media.
