EVERYBODY WANTS SOME!! [2016]

Richard Linklater's fratty feel good Everybody Wants Some!! serves as a spiritual sequel to his 1993 cult classic, Dazed and Confused, by picking up with the main character entering his first year of college.
On the surface it's merely about immature chatter, pranks, drugs, alcohol and sex but beneath it tethers together with easy to relate to characters, familiar situations and self-discovery.  Linklater is wonderful at spying the small growths and unnoticed epiphanies in characters as they mindlessly shoot the shit and unknowingly gain more knowledge.  There really aren't any bad guys in his films but everyone is just as relatably funny as they are a vile assclown, which in real life we tend to forget all too often.  Like the characters themselves, we might not notice but there's a lot more going that we realize only when it's over and it's time to move on.
