It’s that time of year again when high school seniors face the bittersweet rite of graduation. Few films have celebrated that occasion as memorably as does George Lucas’s “American Graffitti”(1973), which turns 40 this year,
unless it might be “Dazed and Confused” (1993) from Richard Linklater (whose “Before Midnight” opens this week), itself celebrating its 20th anniversary.
