I remember sitting on my bed just a couple years ago, wondering to the Heavens when I would finally hit puberty. It has to happen sometime, but no one gets to pinpoint exactly when their boyhood will finally find release so that manhood can take over.
Richard Linklater doesn't have this problem. His Boyhood, which has been years in the making, will finally find release on July 11, the same day as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which means one awesomely strange double feature is in all of our futures.
I've been itching to see this film since its inception, and it's heartening to see all the acclaim it has received on the festival circuit. I can't wait.
