Everybody Wants Some!!
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Richard Linklater. 2016, 116 mins. DCP. Considered a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused by filmmaker Richard Linklater, Everybody Wants Some!! more than earns its double exclamation marks with its exuberant and completely delightful look at the first days of college for a group of testosterone-laden baseball-playing guys who live together at (the fictitious) Texas State University. Pulsing to a late-1970s soundtrack starting with a blast of “My Sharona,” the movie is nothing less than a celebration of being young and restless, with a lot of energy, and big, strapping bodies. Like Dazed and Confused, the film is loosely autobiographical, evoking Linklater’s days as a promising young baseball player.
