Before Midnight ★★★★★

"If you want love, then this is it. This is real life. It's not perfect but it's real."

this is really as perfect, beautiful and brilliant a film can get, huh?

i genuinely don't know where to start, i could go on for hundreds of pages, front and back, about how incredibly beautiful and real this trilogy is. the screenplay, cinematography, score, and ESPECIALLY acting from gorgeous milf gf
♡ julia delpy ♡ and hawt ♡ ethan hawke ♡, I'm not at all even kidding y'all their chemistry is beyond unreal and every scene feels so unbelievably natural, like instead of watching a film about two literal soulmates talking for hours on end, i feel like im actually witnessing their relationship and lives interwine and develop through each facial expression and each phrase of every speech or conversation they make. I don't think ive ever, ever, felt more love towards a hetero couple in film, or in real life. honestly at this point i am just so extremely happy for them, I'm beyond proud of how far they've come. and i think that that's an incredible feat of absolute genius director richard linklater.

this would be a 4.5 (98/100) but because of that blissful sex scene that probably changed my life, this gets a full 5.0 (100/100). anyway,
happy (late, probably) valentine's to you reader ♡
