It must feel great for those involved in the lengthy production of this film to finally see it released. Boyhood is the latest excuse for American critics to gush over Richard Linklater and everything he puts to the screen. Whether or not Linklater may make this kind of movie better than anyone else, I can't see any compelling reason to see this other than its uniquely authentic depiction of time, and certainly no reason to enthuse about it as so many critics have done since seeing it. But then, maybe I won't be able to see another reason until I actually see the film. At least my hopes aren't high. Out in both the UK and the US on the 11th of July.
