Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★½

Talk, talk, talk... it's like My Dinner With Andre, except the scenery's better and these people are way more interesting. People who aren't pretentious or insincere or dishonest... uttering beautiful, believable, intensely personal words, funny and angry and tender and sad, words about life and love and frustration and devotion. Words that may remind you of people you care about, words that might make you happy to be alive and might even make you want to take a fresh shot at things you screwed up.

One hundred minutes of words, with pauses of no more than a few seconds in a row, words flowing like a sparkling brook until the final credits roll. Tedious? Dull? Not a bit, it's a complete and total pleasure.
