UFOs over China in 1974

Directed by
Richard Linklater

Writing credits
Richard Linklater

Genre: Comedy / Drama

Presents a day in the life in Austin, Texas among its social outcasts and misfits, predominantly the twenty-something set, using a series of linear vignettes. These characters, who in some manner just don't fit into the establishment norms, move seamlessly from one scene to the next, randomly coming and going into one another's lives. Highlights include a internal linkUFO  buff who adamantly insists that the U.S. has been on the internal linkmoon since the 1950s, a woman who produces a glass slide purportedly of Madonna's pap smear, and an old anarchist who sympathetically shares his philosophy of life with a robber.

The key to this movie is Linklater's taxi monologue.

About internal linkquantum theory and Schroedinger's cat. Each internal linktime one potential outcome becomes the case, the other potentials collapse. But all other outcomes are thought to exist in alternate internal linkrealities. Each time we become invested in one branch of the narrative, the camera takes us somewhere else. But the character we leave continues to exist and his or her story is assumed to continue -- only not before our eyes.

Full Cast and Crew (in credits order)

Richard Linklater  ....   Should Have Stayed at the Bus Station

every thought creates its own reality should have stayed at the bus station...

"I just had the weirdest internal linkdream, back on the bus there... Do you ever have those dreams where they are just completely real?  I mean they're so vivid, it's just like, completely real... And there's always something bizarre going on in those... I have one every two years or something.. I always remember 'em really good... Like there's always someone getting run over, or something really weird...  One internal linktime I had lunch with Tolstoy.  Another time I was a roadie for Frank Zappa... Anyway, so this dream I just had it was just like that except instead of anything bizarre going on, there was nothing going on at all... man.. it was like the omega man, there was just nobody around... I was just travelling around, staring out the windows and buses and trains and cars you know... when I was at home i was flipping through the TV stations endlessly... reading.  I mean how many dreams do you have where you read in a dream? You know...  wait. damn, there was this book i just read on the bus... you know, it was my dream so I guess I wrote it or something... but uh.. anyway it was bizarre... the premise for this whole book was that every thought you have create its own reality. its like every choice and decision you make the thing you choose not to do fractions off and becomes its own reality and it goes on from there...forever.  in the internal linkWizard of Oz, when Dorothy meets the Scarecrow and they do that little internal linkdance at that crossroads and they think about going in all those directions and end up going that one direction?  all those other directions just because they thought about it became separate realities.. they just went on from there and lived the rest of their lives, entire different movies but we'll never see it because we're trapped in this one reality restriction type of thing..."

Has Faith in Groups You know, that's what I hate: when you start talking like this, like you just pull in these things from the shit you read, and you haven't thought it out for yourself, no bearing on the world around us, and totally unoriginal.

Based on Authoritative Sources Okay, great. Personal attacks now, is that it? I thought we were beyond that.

Has Faith in Groups It's like you just pasted together these bits and pieces from your "authoritative sources." I don't know. I'm beginning to suspect there's nothing really in there.

Based on Authoritative Sources Suspect? You're beginning to suspect? Oh, that's rich, that's really rich. So what?   At least what is there, is based on good sources.

Kalman Spelletich  ....  Video Backpacker

Video Backpacker: "To me, my thing is, a video image is much more powerful and useful than an actual event. Like back when I used to go out, when I was last out, I was walking down the street and this guy, that came barreling out of a bar, fell right in front of me, and he had a knife right in his back, landed right on the ground and... Well, I have no reference to it now. I can't put it on pause. I can't put it on slow mo and see all the little details. And the blood, it was all wrong. It didn't look like blood. The hue was off. I couldn't adjust the hue. I was seeing it for internal linkreal, but it just wasn't right. And I didn't even see the knife impact on the body. I missed that part."

Teacup Sculptor, Having A Breakthrough Day, Cadillac Crook


Having a Breakthrough Day  I've had a total recalibration of my mind, you know. I mean, it's like, I've been banging my head against this 19th century type, um, what? Thought mode? Construct? Human construct? Well, the wall doesn't exist. It's not there, you know. I mean, they tell you, look for the internal linklight at the end of the internal linktunnel. Well, there is no tunnel. There's just no structure. The underlying order is internal linkchaosHail Eris!, man, I mean everything is in one big ball of fluctuating matter.  Constant state of change.  You know?  I mean, across that great internal linkquantum divide is this new consciousness and, you know, I don't know what it's gonna be like but I know that we're all part of it.. I mean it's new physics, you can't look at something without changing it... You know, anything... I mean, like that's almost beyond my internal linkimagination... It's just like that internal linkbutterfly flapping its wings in Galvaston, and somewhere down the road apace, it's gonna create a monsoon in China...

Working on Same Painting  Sorry I'm late.
