Richard Linklater made two of the film, which I set the highest score. And though this time trust the Director played with me today, this his work also breathes sincerity and soaked in personal experience. "Dazed and confused" can be same easily be called "the 70, or as I spent prom" for nothing but the desire to plunge into the head the nostalgia, the movie is not Express. Yes, Linklater is it is important — man is able whole life is looking at old photos. Those who found on the courtyard of the seventies, most likely, too will recognize and appreciate expertly recreated atmosphere. Well, what remains to those who is born under the star of the Millennium? Look at all blank look and asked a rhetorical questions.

In the film plot of the main characters. He same incoherent, as skating area at dad's car. Teens are constantly bored, and the expression "the life is all" they know too literally. Weed, girls, beer, disorderly conduct, partying, hazing and harsh statements. Too obvious and predictable to serve as a basis for film, my opinion. But it is this builds its narrative Linklater, revelling in the melody and more than literary component. Exactly two years ago, did the creators of "I come with the rain", gain as the most ardent of fans, and natural enemies.

As for me, I see this it was pretty boring. The role played by the more and that personally I never have suffered this teenage foolishness, locking herself in eleven in her room with a pile of books. High need is to get pleasure from this film. "Confused," he will leave your audience with, who would it may be.

"Dazed and confused" is not contain a structured story, but based on the real stories of several characters. He tells the story one day graduates of the school "slaughter" of the 70's that grandiose "proved^ childhood" at the participation of the "main attributes" mindless fun — sex, drugs and rock-n-roll.

The first film footage demonstrate the use of students of the drug marijuana charge in the walls of the school, this the theme runs through the whole film. One of the main characters are adolescents, the distributor and an active consumer of marijuana Slater, in throughout the film wears a t-shirt with a cannabis leaf Smoking a Bong 39 joint, advertise your product to their peers and younger adolescents and supplies everyone to school, home, car at the party. Talks of his friends built on the topic of drug use, are the words "pot", "Bong", "marijuana". The use of cannabis is demonstrated in various scenes of the film in the form of manufacturing and Smoking joints and Smoking through a Bong; in the process of a country party teenagers Smoking marijuana combined with the excessive consumption of beer.

The film contains scenes in which are displayed or referred to as mental effects from drug use, to mainly marijuana. For example, directly in school teen Slater swallows the drug, washing it down with water from the tap. On the question of each state of health the answer should be: "it is better. Here is fun!" In another scene on the party is a conversation graduates from a teenager: "Bong is? — a no. — Smoking weed would be cool!". Further, according to the course of the film in the machine Slater ^ closeup smokes pot and it offers friends, and then they loudly

to laugh and to cry, to behave in a risky and with the reckless gaiety: break on the move mailboxes, overturned trash bins and etc. ie shows the state of emotional excitation, euphoria, feelings of courage, of boundless freedom and permissiveness under the influence of the drug marijuana. In addition, in one scene a rustic party, under the effects of Smoking marijuana and drinking beer to two minors engage in sexual relations with casual partners (in as everyone has their guy and girl). Ie demonstrates a property of marijuana to arouse sexual desire, to induce a state of emancipation, of liberation from social and moral boundaries that all those characters perceived as natural positive.

As has already said, the film does not has a structured plot, but the display of cannabis the main characters is associated with the drug subculture, making the film a landmark in terms of propaganda culture of the late hippie, an integral symbol of which was Smoking the drug marijuana.

The ideology of the youth drug culture is reflected in the film through various means — visual, verbal, musical. For example, one of the students draws a green leaf of hemp right in school notebook. Senior hippie Slater confidently and enthusiastically broadcasts to the peers the idea that the history of the United States as a free country is inextricably linked with culture of cultivation and consumption of marijuana: "George Washington just smoked weed. It the whole field of it has grown. Yes it all the country was raised. Then all the country was under high. He knew I did. He knew that could make good money. And he had grown up the whole field...". In another episode, he explains friends — the members of the team, the ban of adults on the use of drugs by young people in the following way: "They are simply afraid that we will be too good."

Smoking marijuana served as a youth protest against the existing society with its limitations, the framework of "unnecessary" regulations. Pot in the film is all smoke — "gold" and young workers, members of school sports teams, high school attached adolescents; at this, despite the existing law, the attitude of adults (parents, coaches, police) seems to be very formal, indulgent or permissive. Those guys, not use marijuana, say the boredom at leisure activities.

In the film, the music group Aerosmith (who were called "bad boys of Boston"), whose leader has proclaimed the motto "Sex, rules out drug abuse and rock-n-roll." In favor of these symbols of freedom is the choice one of heroes, who refused participate in team sports conditions of signing voluntary pledges not to use drugs and alcohol.

The shooting of the film was attended by several future stars 16-year-old Milla Jovovich, Matthew McConaughey, Adam Goldberg and others. Beautiful, stylish, secured, on cool machine is well and tastefully dressed young people having fun, with impunity and without any negative effects of consuming marijuana: despite the Smoking joints under the beer in throughout the morning look "like cucumbers". It creates a false perception about the safety of marijuana consumption for social status, physical health and mental condition of the minor.

Ie Smoking marijuana is served in the movie an integral component of the structuring of the leisure activities provided youth and as the initial point of initiation of the "greenhorns" to adult free and independent life, is — is loaded with positive value-semantic content. If any negative direct or remote consequences of marijuana use and drug lifestyle in the film is demonstrated.

The movie I liked it. I love those movies about American students that come off and arrange a crazy party. The film is filled with characters, from beginners who are beaten, bullied them to high school students, cool types who have not hang out one year, Smoking, bullying all whole. Loved that the film is full of characters. Stupid and smart, stoners and youngsters, cowardly and crazy. All these people there nobody is the main, all in the background, however, everyone will find their favorite character. I found. It is a newbie who came to the students have known their life. And also the cowardly type who decided to give to surrender to the bully. With the first seconds of the film I everything seemed insanely real. The students in this film, even walk like nobody removes not looking for them, they just live, but we are looking for them. In short, if you like movies about American students, like me, must see. Teen Comedy rule. if not like the you can still look in the company of friends. But I have an idea. Maybe many parents do not support it. get drunk and watch this movie with friends drunk, because the film is so, it drunk alluring, as the weed or the alcohol, do the same as do the characters in this film, hang out. Hardly film zimet place in the heart of your parents. But it will take place in the hearts of teenagers, because someone else so truly will talk about us as authors genres?

In the end I will say that the movie bored me only the end. When I had to watch the last 10 minutes, and I just such a man.
