'Boyhood Meets World' Mashup Gives The Oscar Nominee The Respect It Deserves
'Boyhood' is the nominee. Not 'Boy Meets World'. Duh. Wow. You want to go into this video with a sense of detachment and humor, but damn if this isn't a really, really, really touching little mix-up that takes the best of both works and piles them on top of one another for a big ole' sentiment sandwich. Was Boy Meets World that good of a show? I sure didn't think so, but put it over some Boyhood folk guitar and some title cards, and it becomes MUCH more profound. Why didn't Linklater just make this movie? I bet he couldn't get the rights. So he did the next easiest thing. He filmed a movie over 12 years and hoped none of the main characters died. Enjoy this clip. It's pretty great.
