The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Boyhood”

By Matt Neglia 

The 2014 retrospective is coming to an end. We have now come to Richard Linklater’s 12-year- long opus “Boyhood” starring Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, and Ethan Hawke. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014 to universal critical acclaim, the gigantic independent film (shot over the course of 12 years) could not maintain its momentum until Oscar night where it lost Best Picture and Best Director, only winning one award for Patricia Arquette in the Best Supporting Actress category. Remembered for being a bridesmaid, how does the film hold up today? Was the praise warranted? I am joined by Dan Bayer and Patreon guests Isaiah Washington & Mike Pisa-Kino to discuss. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wild,” “Inherent Vice,” “Whiplash,” “The Imitation Game,” Nightcrawler,” American Sniper,” The Theory Of Everything” & “Interstellar.”
