Matthew McConaughey (Criterion Collection)

Vault video: Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Dazed and Confused’ audition reel

And so this is the part where we all say “thanks” to the Criterion Collection for releasing some tasty video footage around its padded DVD release of “Dazed and Confused” — including a grainy video of a very young McConaughey trying out for the film.

And Matthew, sweet Headbangers Ball shirt, man.
