ERIC F : I want to see the 2 hour and 45 minute first cut!!!!😎👍🏽

Muhammad I’m hard Bruce lee : I have watched this film a ridiculous amount of times it’s now become a film I put on when I come in from a night out drunk lol

GetsumJ : Well, I graduated in 1978 from High school and can tell you Richard Linklater nailed it. The attention to detail of the time, the simple phrases, the music, the cars, the atmosphere is perfect. It takes me back to the "Freaks" of the time and how they dominated all social circles in school. Maybe that generation of "us" just get it and the studios didn't at the time because they were bowing down to John Hughes 80s flicks. If you didn't live in the mid-late 70s, this movie will pretty much show you what it was like. And where Fast Times was good for us to watch, Dazed and Confused was like opening my year book from High school and reliving the time moment by moment. It was based on the truth. Thank you Richard Linklater for telling our story, you did an excellent job. R.L.Turner Graduate 1978- Carrollton TX.

2braindamage : I'm letting you have shotgun. But cuz it's cuz only 'cuz I'm goin' inside.

thrice bang : the entire year of 1993-94, Dobie Theater in Austin, Texas played Dazed at midnight, every night.

Gustavo Zúñiga : Every time I watch this movie and get to the end I get this feeling that I would’ve liked to keep on going with then...keep riding, getting the tickets, going to the Aerosmith concert etc. Simply put: this is a masterpiece with PERFECT casting

enigma 1982 : Many people who are between 30 and 45 have the same nostalgic feeling about the 90's now.

smolville : You forgot about Milla Jovovich.

JFK35 517 : Jodi Kramer. My all time biggest movie crush. All the girls were beautiful. All the guys were cool. I spent my high school years in the mid to late 90’s wishing it was the 70’s. And I was wearing Rebel Grey . Dazed and confused and Stand By Me. My two favorite movies of all time . Thank you to all who created such a classic

Andrew Gillies : Should have made it a 2 hr and 45 minute movie

bugyourparents : L I V I N, it's a verb

Th3_What : Someone's tokin' some reefer.

DannyWilliamH : Everyone has their personal story with this movie. Mine is first hearing about it from a few friends and then seeing it weeks later. This was the mid-90s and the movie had been out for a few years already. My group of friends were young, wannabe-stoners so it watched as a stoner comedy to me for the first 10x I'd seen it. We'd all quote Wooderson or Slater. That was about it. Oddly, when I grew a bit older I developed a strange feeling toward the movie: I'd still enjoy and laugh through most of it but I'd also see it for what it is and no longer a cool but cheap stoner film. More strikingly is a specific moment in the movie that crushes me to the point that I avoid the movie now. The end of the party at the Moon Tower fills my chest and stomach with a sad nostalgia for a time I never lived in. I'm an 80s baby but that scene of everyone filing out before Sunrise to "Tuesday's Gone" breaks my fucking heart. I think it's equal parts nostalgia for *my* youth and the pain in knowing that the characters won't know for years that this actually was the best time of their lives. They all talk of how much it sucks (and it does) but for most of them (us) this is absolutely the happiest they'll ever be. As London said, he imagines that Pink won't grow up to be very successful in life. At the moment he's 17yo and THE guy at his HS, the coolest guy there. He plays QB for his HS in Texas. His life is good. He's the guy everyone is friends with. Yet, he's 17yo and he doesn't know that all that can so easily change in just 5-10 years. If true and Pink is just an ordinary schlub in adulthood, he has no idea of that potential future in the time we see him. That ruins me because it's true for all of us. This isn't a 70s stoner comedy, it's an honest movie about being a teenager. It transcends era. It's a sincere look at the low-stakes highs and lows of being a teen. It's a movie about the years that seem so unimportant but hold the stories we tell when we're 50. So, when I see that scene of the party being over, the Sun coming up to end their fun time and life taking a step forward, it physically hurts and I can't fully explain why. It just hurts. Not for them specifically but in the way that time goes on and the freedom of childhood has to end for us all eventually. It's set in that specific time of life when a guy like Wooderson is considered "the old one" to everyone but her like 22yo 😅. We all knew that guy and when we're 32 we'd kill to be that young again.

Dave Finders : You ought to ditch the two geeks, but we'll we waerey about that later .

Jeffrey Emerson : One of my favorite films of all time

immobilien : I attended Sam Houston State University from fall of 1975 till graduation December 1978. This movie was about a day in the life of Huntsville, Texas high school students. I used to go to the Emporium all the time, stood outside and watched girls a lot..lol. Played pool and foosball and drank a few beers there.  I also made a lot of runs to Greenspoint Mall in North Houston to the nearest ticketmaster location to get Aerosmith, Heart, Bob Dylan, Bob Segar, Ted Nugent, Eagles, and many others' tickets. There was no internet...so, that's what you did.....it was important..lol.  The keg parties out in the woods were called "Fire Tower" parties. There were fire towers that were very high up. This was the Davy Crockett National Forest, tall Piney woods. Well, to be initiated or so I was told, you had to climb to the top with a sixpack of beer and then come down. Just like in the movie, there were little groups of college kids and high school kids just having a good time. It was a great place to just go chill out, drink, and mingle with the girls. I remember being at the Emporium and a car pulled up at the front door and two larger high school kids came in looking for one of the younger high schoolers. They picked him up and carried him out the door and threw him in the back seat of the car and took off. I asked everyone near me...what was that all about?  One of the local girls said it was High School hazing., so I guess he got his butt whipped on the edge of town... I want to say Richard Linklater was there about that same time as me. From what I was told, he was on the SHSU baseball team. I had friends on the team, but I don't remember him.  There was so much partying going on in that town, I am amazed that I graduated.  I just remember my experiences there were..............wait for it.................Alright, Alright.......Alright....;)

Michelle Salay : Alright, alright, alright!

Broke Boy : You cool man?

Mikiros Garoes : I only came here to do 2 things, Newton. Kick some ass & drink some beer, looks like we're almost out of beer. Not only one of my all time fave movies but also one of the few movies that I know ALL the words to.

Michael Moretti : As a child of the 70s, I LOVED this movie. It kinda freaks me out how much time has passed - this movie was set 17 years in the past; but, 25 years have passed since this movie was released.

Ben Schumacher : Beware the Dazed and Confused Man-a-thon; every time a character says, "man", take a drink. Slater is your best/worst friend!

Cobb Knobbler : Michelle Burke was so damn gorgeous.

Smarterthan You : Movie I can't find is kids... remember that one..it was good...

Eddie Truhead : After watchin this, "I'm fixin to be a lot better Man." Pure cinematic magic. The planets aligned for this film in so many ways. Classic. Love it. That's what I'm talkin about.

Led Zep : Anyone who grew up during the 70's in Jr high or High school, should totally be able to relate to this film. Love it and watch it every time its on. Yea I said TOTALLY......70's baby...

greevve22 : Check you later (☞ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)☞

Grey Matters : I've watched this movie too many times to count. One of the most quote worthy movie ever made! Besides the characters and the jokes and quotes, I think this movie is great because it captures a place in time perfectly. It transports you to the summer of '76, in the suburbs of Austin, Texas and you spend a hilarious 90 plus minutes there. Killer cars and trucks, " we're talking some serious fuckin' muscle", and a great sound track too! Party at the moon tower!!

DaviDamir : Why wasnt mila jovovich and her boyfriend mentioned.that drug deal in the room scene n beer delivery guy

grahamjarman : i was born in '78. i used to watch this movie every friday evening after school as a jr in highschool. it got me pumped for the weekend.

M. HLC : Thank you! Probably my favourite film.

Me my opinion Sche : Oh by the way. Which one is Pink?

Alison H : When I say “alright alright alright “it’s like a compatibility test for whomever I’m with. ☺️ If they have no idea that’s it’s a movie reference then I’m SO disappointed! Not compatible!

Jade Cougar : How's it going man? Pretty good how's it going with you? Say man do you got a joint? Uhhhh, not on me man. It'd be alot cooler if you did hahahaha Now thats how you make friends

Assateague Cottage : I love this movie. Such an accurate portrayal of a typical summer night, parties, rumors of parties but you still end up driving around most of the night anyhow. There was always that older hangeron that could buy you beer. You were always being chased and harassed by the cops, occasionally caught by them, threatened a bit then let go with a warning and told to go home. It was all so great

rvz77 : So there should be a 25th anniversary release! Where is it!?? Put the 2.45min version on there. It's a cult classic! Idk how these ppl think! Or what they work on over there.

James Meaux : This was a night in my life in the 70s. 7/23/61

Michael Warunek : What's up with Parker Posy doing an interview from a pool? She's trying to flaunt it.

Alex M : This is sick, where is all this footage from, DVD?

PunkFuckUp : wow typical hollywood snakes -- 21:00 'it was our movie, even though it was ricks vision' no rick wrote it, directed it and came up with the idea, I'd say its his movie

TrollMunchkinz m : Dazed and confused 2 with all the original actors?

raimey ewens : Alright, alright, alright

cee dee : Adam Goldberg almost ruined this movie if they had him say anything more it would be unbearable.

Coffins : Wait just a f*cking second, Milla Jovovich was not mentioned once in this doc? She's on the movie cover for christ sake.

howieburg : That other crowd you’re runnin’ with-don’t THINK I haven’t noticed!

Dirtboxhor : They didnt interview Pickford at all?

Mike Wilkinson : right up there with cheech n Chong....stoners rule......

Wicked Prayers : I love this movie but also get a little bummed when the end credits roll. We didn't know back then how good we had it. Things have changed so much (in my opinion) for the worse. When I try to explain it to younger people they just roll their eyes and defiantly defend their current culture of white suburban kids emulating all things ghetto. Or maybe I just overly miss a time when I was too young to understand how screwed up the world really is.

Louis McClung : I used this movie to show my Son what it was like when i was his age. Dont pull crap and think daddy dont know the game!😆👍🏼 Daddy was a master of “The Game!” 😎

John Raisor : Fixin to be a whole lot better man

Carey Moffett : The funny thing is I went to school with a guy just like Slater. Stoner,hell he even looked like Rory and the kicker is his name was Slater. LOL
