Author Name:Johnson, David T.


Richard Linklater's filmmaking choices seem to defy basic patterns of authorship. 
From his debut with the inventive independent narrative Slacker, the Austin-based director's divergent films have included the sci-fi noir A Scanner Darkly, the socially conscious Fast Food Nation, the kid-friendly The School of Rock, the teen ensemble Dazed and Confused, and the twin romances Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.
Yet throughout his varied career spanning two decades, Linklater has maintained a sense of integrity while working within a broad range of budgets, genres, and subject matters.

Book Description

  •     There isn't much scholarship on Linklater so I guess one must take what one can get at this point but this book lacks enough information about the director and his film and insight into their meaning to make it really worthwhile. Let's hope more books will be written about one of the younger auteur directors working today.
