The film is about moments in life, not necessarily periods, and there are no annoying writings that pop up on the cinema screen along the way, to provide information about where we are in time because that is completely irrelevant as an audience we should feel the moments, not be informed about them.

They say it was just a bunch of filmed sequences in the life of a small boy as he grew...Boyhood is not a feel good Hollywood block buster movie.
There are numerous times in this film where Linklater uses misdirection in the opposite way that most movies do.
