School of Rock (Richard Linklater, 2003)

One of these days I hope to write a more in-depth appreciation of this film, as well as Jack Black's exemplary performance in it. For now, the piece I wrote for Movie Mezzanine is more of a general recommendation, a reminder of this small but poignant delight to go with the limited release of Before Midnight, which I am waiting for with bated breath. In retrospect, Linklater nails the budding youth of Generation Y with the same observant and honest eye with which he charts Generation X, and I hope he does more movies about millennials in the future.

My full piece is up now at Movie Mezzanine.
