When Dazed and Confused hit theaters in 1993, no one knew what kind of legs it would have. The coming-of-age high school comedy starred the still-unfamous Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey in all their cheeky best. It would eventually become a cult classic (due, in part, to fans wanting to see a young Ben and Matthew).
The film, whose title comes from the Zeppelin tune of the same name, is about a group of high school seniors on their last day of school in 1976. Bell-bottoms and rock music rule, and everyones ready for something anything to happen. Theres plenty of drinking, pot smoking and hazing of incoming freshmen. This launching pad for several future megastars also features some great quotable quotes and an incredible soundtrack. 11:55 p.m. today and tomorrow. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmark-theatre.com. $6.50 to $9.50.
