Theresa Smith Director pulls off cinematic feat

Todd McCarthy Exploring youth
James Berardinelli Because of the dedication and effort involved in making something like Boyhood, we probably won't see its like again in the near future, but I'm glad for this opportunity to view the results of Linklater's bold and rewarding experiment.
Peter Travers Richard Linklater's coming-of-age tale is the best movie of the year, a four-star game-changer that earns its place in the cultural time capsule.
Tomatometer Epic in technical scale but breathlessly intimate in narrative scope, Boyhood is a sprawling investigation of the human condition.
