Dazed and Confused is a 1993 coming of age comedy film written and directed by Richard Linklater. The film's large ensemble cast featured a number of future stars, including Matthew McConaughey, Jason London, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich, Cole Hauser, Parker Posey, Anthony Rapp, Adam Goldberg, Joey Lauren Adams, Nicky Katt, and Rory Cochrane. The film depicts a group of teenagers during the last day of school in 1976.
The film grossed less than $8 million at the U.S. box office, but in recent years has achieved cult film status. Quentin Tarantino included it on his list of the 10 greatest films of all time in the 2002 Sight and Sound.[1] It also ranked third on Entertainment Weekly magazine's list of the 50 Best High School Movies.[2] The magazine also ranked it 10th on their "Funniest Movies of the Past 25 Years" list.[3]
The title of the film is derived from the Jake Holmes song of the same name, popularized by Led Zeppelin.[4] Linklater approached surviving members of the band for permission to use their songs in the film, but, while Jimmy Page agreed, Robert Plant refused.[5][6]

But Richard Linklater's "Dazed and Confused" treats it as the big-ass, all-important, life-changing event that it probably should be regarded as.
