Reviews


95
TheWrap - Alonso Duralde
Unlike the “memberberries” school of nostalgia that can reduce itself to “I had that lunch box!” Linklater gets granular and specific (and thus universal) about his memories and his perceptions of the world at that time.
90
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
It’s clearly a labor of love, a unique reflection on an unforgettable summer, inviting us to share in a moment of communal spirit which now seems to belong to another world.
83
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
This semi-autobiographical sketch isn’t really a story at all so much as a sweetly effervescent string of Kodachrome memories from the filmmaker’s own childhood — the childhood of someone who was born in a place without any sense of yesterday, and came of age at a time that was obsessed with tomorrow.
83
The Film Stage - John Fink
The film may be Linklater’s warmest and most nostalgic precisely because of its specifics.
80
Variety - Peter Debruge
Turns out, this movie isn’t so much about space as it is about time travel, or more specifically, taking Linklater and his followers back more than half a century.
