As a wise man once sang, “Life is a rollercoaster”, and no-one in Hollywood better exemplifies that than Ben Affleck, a man who’s experienced enough highs and lows to keep him going several lifetimes. With heist thriller The Town taking him back to his old Boston stamping ground, we’ve run a forensic eye over those moments of glorious triumph and incredible career catastrophe. Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy ride…

Ben Affleck: A Movie-By-Movie Guide  | Dazed And Confused (1993)
Dazed And Confused (1993)

There are worse movies to kick off your feature career in earnest than a role in Richard Linklater’s Dazed And Confused, and worse roles than that of Fred O’Bannion, a dim-witted jock who likes nothing more than kicking (or batting) freshman ass. The seminal slacker-com also helped launch the careers of Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey and Adam Goldberg, but have any of them got an Oscar? Nope, so Ben’s had the most impressive rise from these humble beginnings.

Quality feature - well worth it just for the last page - I'd never seen either of those two clips. Handsome Men Club was funny, and it was interesting to see all the cameos. However, The "Ben Affleck" video had me in stitches - I don't know how long this has been kicking around the internet, but it's been long time since I've seen something that has had me laughing so much it hurt ! I had to watch it again just to try and spot all the cameos in it.   The fact that Affleck is willing to send himself up like this grants him a lot of respect from me (not that I imagine that matters sp; Top class!
