Richard Linklater, director of Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, School of Rock, Slacker, and much more, is no stranger to bridging the gap between genres and being conceptual with his films like no one has before.
It might be eye-catching to read that his latest film “That’s What I’m Talking About” will follow up, in different ways, where Dazed and Confused and Boyhood left off, but it certainly shouldn’t come as a total surprise. The film centers around a college freshman balancing college life (i.e. party, party, party) with being on the college baseball team.
While that’s a little vague, Linklater has done plenty with far less of a premise and we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an “alright, alright, alright”-style line that people endlessly quote from That’s What I’m Talking About.
