Ranking Richard Linklaters best films


Richard Linklater is a modern filmmaker who can already be ranked amongst the greats. His keen eye for relationship drama and his ability to bring the audience back to a time and place through atmosphere alone builds films that feel timeless. This means that it caused quite a dilemma in the TYF crew in picking out what films constituted as his best, but we’ve narrowed it down to eight that exemplify what makes him such a talent. Picked via a poll for the site’s writers, I’m immensely pleased with our number one (my personal favorite of the bunch), mildly surprised by the second and surprised about where Boyhood ranked overall.

Take a look below at our ranking and let us know in the comments what Richard Linklater film is your favorite.
