Stuff Singapore - - Review - Tom Wig­gins

Shot over 12 years us­ing gen­uinely age­ing hu­mans, Richard Lin­klater’s tale of grow­ing up of­ten suc­ceeds in feel­ing more like a doc­u­men­tary than fic­tion, par­tic­u­larly in the way the boy of the ti­tle be­comes an ir­ri­tat­ing, self-right­eous stu­dent by the end. You’ll want to slap him. As screen rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the pas­sage into the adult world go, this is spot-on.
