  • 'Boyhood' is Richard Linklater's crowning achievement as a filmmaker

    It started as "a narrative problem," writer-director Richard Linklater says. "How do you tell a story, with actors, over a long period of time? You can't re-cast it when you're catching up with somebody, year by year. The change in appearance would be too...
