He is known for the coming of age comedy Dazed and Confused (1993), the romantic drama film trilogy Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013); the music-themed comedy School of Rock (2003), the rotoscope animated Waking Life (2001) and A Scanner Darkly (2006). From 2002 to 2014, he filmed Boyhood (2014), a passion project over twelve years. Receiving universal acclaim, Linklater won the Golden Globe, Critics' Choice Movie Awards and BAFTAs for Best Director and Best Picture. He also received his first nomination for the Academy Award for Best Director, along with nominations for Original Screenplay and Picture.

Many of his films are noted for their loosely structured narrative; two of his projects – the Before... films and Boyhood – feature the same actors filmed over an extended period of years. He is also known for loyalty to his actors, having worked with Ethan Hawke and Matthew McConaughey in many of his films.
