This Minute at Runco
Dazed and Confused
By Pippa Edelen, Runco Marketing
I agree with the Washington Post, which noted that that Dazed and Confused ought to be in a prominent place at the Library of Congress, next to The Godfather, American Graffiti, Citizen Kane and other quintessentially American works. Like all those films, Dazed reflects American culture so well, it becomes part of it. And it’s the only movie I’ve ever seen where I wished I went to high school in a Dallas suburb where seniors initiate freshman with a series of toosh whoopings with a custom paddle.
Debuting my freshman year of college (and just a year too late for us to emulate the “Seniors” shirts and knee socks during my own senior-year brou-ha-ha), Dazed was the one escape that never failed to please. When dollars were scarce among my new college freshman friends, we opted to skip the pizza and hop to the Bijou (a dilapidated church complete with a creepy fellowship courtyard and LED-lights in the fountain). Nearly 20 years later, I can’t skip over this movie when it’s on TV, even though I own the DVD. This is not a cinematic life-changer and watching it at home on a Runco flat screen display with my fridge and microwave close by may actually beat the Bijou in Eugene, OR. And perhaps adding a new twist to this fan favorite? Identifying the huge stars with bit parts in the movie. Can you find Renee Zellweger?Hint, while Wooderson gets older, she stays the same age… Dazed is a definite must watch.
All right, all right, all right…
