Watching the movie Boyhood
was an unprecedented experience, and continues to challenge me, days after viewing.
The moments that are most striking for me, were when I would think to myself that the authenticity of the time related scenes, like video gaming, or clothing, were so realistic, and then realizing, they were real
, were when I ascertained that I was watching science fiction
Knowing Richard Linklater from, Slacker
and one of his more recent films, Waking Life
, I think this was one,of the multitude of intentions of this movie.
I’ve never seen anything like it. There have been documentaries
, and even Russian Ark
a time bending foray with uncut shots and never-ending scenes. But,nothing as dynamic and significant as this simple triumph in storytelling and sort of eternal perspicacity
