I tuned in to see the credits and found it hard to shut it off. I did, since I don't have the time to see it now, but I have a seeicnrng this coming Tuesday. Richard Linklater brings so much intelligence, wit, and filmaking savvy to everything he does; I'm looking forward to it.Thanks for the link. As a matter of fact, thanks for everything on your site. It's wholly original; completely you, and it's great.
