Chris and Matt from the Movie Bunker Podcast return to Flixwatcher to review Chris’ choice Boyhood.


Boyhood is Richard Linklater’s 2014 coming of age drama spanning 2001-2013 in real-time of the life of Mason as he grows up in Texas. Starring Ethan Hawke (Mason Snr), Ellar Coltrane (Mason), Lorelei Linklater (Samantha), and in an Oscar-winning role Patricia Arquette (Olivia).

And that’s it. Mason Snr and Olivia split up and Mason and Samantha grow up – over three hours. If that’s not your bag then you’ll probably struggle to get over the initial gimmick of being recorded over real-time. If affecting drama played out with amazing performances with warmth and passion Boyhood is for you.



Scores for Boyhood were mixed – recommendability is high from Chris, Helen, and Kobi less so for Matt. It’s near three hour run time lets the score down for repeat viewing but Boyhood scores 4.03 overall.
