This movie was sorely in need of editing. It was way too long. I enjoyed it more in the beginning. Later, I couldn't wait for it to end. Overrated.

Aside from the 12-year production. Nothing else is special.

A most ambitious project from Richard Linklater - a film 12 years in the making following the life of Mason - along with his family. Though there is some pacing issues, the film is a brilliant portrayal of this life. I especially like the use of the music, along with cultural touchstones (9/11, Harry Potter, elections, technology) to place you in that moment of time. It doesn't try to make this life look amazing or magical - it's just life, warts and all - casting is great, emotion high and though I preferred the first half over the second myself, as a whole, it's an excellent film deserving of its accolades.

There were a few false notes at the beginning, plus I was struck by how steadily upwardly mobile the parents were -- that's not how I remember the last 15 years. But overall, I really enjoyed this. It was almost more like watching Michael Apted's Up documentaries than an ordinary film, but I've always loved those. A very ambitious project, and I'm surprised and delighted by how well it paid off.

I canīt say itīs excellent because I felt it too slow, but itīs excellent. itīs our life in the big screen. The director did a great job portraying our daily (and boring and routine) life in there. And the soundtrack is amazing.
