‘Boyhood’ — still on the big screen

Richard Linklater’s beautiful “Boyhood,” already sweeping up yearend awards and sure to be a fixture on many 2014 top-ten lists (it’s definitely on mine), will be out on DVD and various streaming outlets in early January. But for now, you can still catch it the way it was meant to be seen: on the big screen. It’s currently at the Crest Cinema Center, at least through Thursday. The film, made over a period of 12 years, was a remarkable journey for Linklater and the cast, who discuss the process in a new featurette available on Hulu. It’s absolutely worth a look, particularly to hear the director’s daughter Lorelei (one of the stars of “Boyhood”) dissing her father’s earlier work, “Waking Life.” “Not to insult you, Daddy,” says the very poised little girl, perhaps 8 years old, “but it was kind of boring for a little child.” Watch the featurette here.
