“Dazed and Confused” quotes(1993)
Plot – Austin, Texas. In the 24 hours during which the story takes place - the last day of school - the young protagonists do stupid things in a supermarket, recreating the main episodes of the TV series “Gilligan’s Island”. Crazy adventures come one after another before the summer really begins with the hangovers, the fights and the mutual humiliation. The movie is a bitter comedy about youth in the American province. It is a very low-budget film, included in the teen movie’s scene “made in USA”, that gives us a no ordinary perspective on the situation.
