So what is BOYHOOD? It's a portrayal of the current disillusionment generation of America, one that further externalizes the statist nature of the government and the non-progressiveness of the culture that resides around it.
Hmm, the film didn't strike me as particularly political. Not exactly sure what that means either.

It's fascinating how you tend to view a film as some parallel thematic connection. It's as if you prefer the subtext to the text.
Along those lines, I haven't seen The Tale of Princess Kaguya yet, but isn't it also subtextually about disillusionment created by a non-progressive culture?
