"Everybody Wants Some!!" is Richard Linklater's self-described spiritual sequel to "Dazed and Confused".The song's thumping bass, which opens the film, is an early signal of the exuberance to come in Linklater's marvellously loose and affectionately antic portrait of college life.It's a chapter that Linklater's "Boyhood" never got to. It's rendered with the same attention to the rhythms of youth and the in-between moments to which the director has long been drawn.As with "Dazed," Linklater has assembled a strong ensemble of young, promising actors.By focusing on baseball players, Linklater has given a far tenderer, dynamic (and largely true) picture of young male athletes than they are usually afforded.Though stuffed with '80s details and a soundtrack from Van Halen to the Sugar Hill Gang, the period-setting matters far less than the capturing – and appreciation – of a moment.
