Paul & Amy party with 1993’s throwback high school ensemble comedy Dazed And Confused! They watch Matthew McConaughey’s dazzling audition tape, learn the studio’s original plan for the soundtrack, and ask if director Richard Linklater prioritizes the male POV in his films. Plus: We try to determine which high school film we’ve covered is most spaceship-worthy.
This is the final episode of our “Back To School” miniseries; next week we kick off a new series about horror films with 1931’s Frankenstein!
