Dazed and Confused

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 everyone’s ready for something — anything — to happen. There’s 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.
Fri., Nov. 7, 11:55 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 8, 11:55 p.m., 2008
