Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★★

My rating clearly indicates that I loved this. Yet I’ll admit this didn’t feel quite the same as the first two. But I’m sure that was by design. 

The script & its execution felt like it had the same magic as the first two. Where it strays for me is the actual content but I don’t mean that negatively. Whereas the first two felt more romantic & idealistic, this one kind of crushed your hopes & dreams compared to the first two. I don’t want to spoil too much for those that haven’t seen this yet but the conclusion of Delpy, Hawke, & Linklater’s great trilogy portrays a much different side of love than the first two.
