Richard Linklater Has an Idea for a TV Show and a New Script Set in Texas About ‘Demagoguery’
As with so many conversations with and about filmmaker Richard Linklater, the talk turned to Texas.

Deep in production on a film elsewhere and with the East Coast-set “Last Flag Flying” slated to premiere in the fall, Linklater touched on future projects while speaking to the Television Critics Association on Sunday.

While speaking about the upcoming PBS American Masters documentary “Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny,” Linklater referenced a recent New Yorker article about the history of Texas-based productions. Linklater explained that he has an idea percolating that may bring him back to making another film in his home state.

“I have a script I’m working on now that touches into Texas. It’s a true story that’ll be somewhere down the line that touches on demagoguery, a kind of con man, let’s say. To me, that’s apt for our times,” Linklater said.

The Before Trilogy

Who would have thought that a ’90s ‘slacker’ independent filmmaker would make such a strong romantic statement? Well, it’s not all romance in the old sense. In what must be a project of love, Richard Linklater examines the ongoing love life of Jesse & Céline, in three movies spread across eighteen years. The conversations are as free- flowing as are the cameras roaming through European back streets. Thanks to the commitment of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, the in-depth relationship seems real.

Film Review: Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny

  • CineVue
★★★☆☆ In the two and a half decades since his first feature film Slackers debuted at New Directors/New Films in New York, Richard Linklater has built an unlikely career out of humility and driven artistic ambition. Choosing to remain in Austin, Texas rather than racing blindly for the big lights of Tinseltown he's cultivated an enviable reputation as an indie auteur and the epitome of the mission at Sundance. In Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny, a new film screening at this year's festival, Louis Black and Karen Bernstein pay warm tribute to the filmmaker in what is a fitting ode to independent spirit more than a penetrating portrait.

Movie Review: Richard Linklater looks back on his life so far in Dream Is Destiny

Even devoted fans of filmmaker Richard Linklater might question the need for Louis Black’s bio-doc Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny. Only in his mid-50s—and arguably at the peak of his career after the major awards and box office success of 2014’s Boyhood—the writer-director has so much work left to do that a retrospective feels premature. Also, Linklater has hardly ever been circumspect about how his own past has informed his films. He’s an articulate and gregarious interview subject and someone who’s drawn heavily from the details of his own life in his Slacker, Dazed And Confused, Before Sunrise, Waking Life, Boyhood, and Everybody Wants Some. In fact, there have already been two movies made about Linklater: 2014’s 21 Years (about his career up to Boyhood) and 2013’s Double Play (about his relationship with pioneering structuralist filmmaker James Benning). There wouldn’t seem ...

‘In A Valley Of Violence’ Lives Up To Its Name – SXSW Day 2

‘In A Valley Of Violence’ Lives Up To Its Name – SXSW Day 2
Day 2 of SXSW is still going strong here in Downtown Austin as I write this at 11:15 Pm local time, and things won’t shut down for another few hours thanks to midnight screenings and the mindscrew of the switch to Daylight Savings Time. Aside from copious screenings — I saw SXSW co-founder Louis Black’s documentary Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny (it’s great by the way) — there was a minor controversy that flared up today courtesy of an overzealous SXSW volunteer who…

Sundance 2016 Interview: Richard Linklater, Louis Black And Karen Bernstein On Dream Is Destiny

When Louis Black, founder of the Austin Chronicle and cofounder of Austin's SXSW festival, asked Richard Linklater to be the subject of his new documentary, Linklater did not say yes, but he didn't say no either. Somehow this was enough to result in the wonderful documentary Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny, which Black co-directed with Karen Bernstein of American Masters. Dream Is Destiny is an unpretentious look at the most down-to-earth filmmaker I can think of: Richard Linklater. His stories in another director's hands would reek of pretension, but Linklater somehow manages to tackle big ideas - the intangible kind most art filmmakers dishonor in translation - in a way that honors what it means and feels like to be alive.If you were to read a...
