Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★½

Writing about this for the new site, but briefly: I sympathize with the view, expressed here by Will Leitch, that this movie, great as it may be, is a hard pill to swallow. Witnessing the bittersweet romantic feeling of the first two movies shrivel before the long-term problems of a relationship between two complicated, contentious individuals is somewhat disillusioning. It's also true. And near-perfect.
