Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★

The last of Linklater's beloved 'Before' trilogy and a first-time watch for me. I watched all three films in one day, which I recommend to anyone who has not yet seen them.

'Midnight' is by far the best of the series. I believed in what these characters were about, their struggles, and ultimately their love for each other. The addition of family dynamics to their relationship add some much needed reality and drama - and three films in Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are these characters to me.

The craft is here and nearly flawless: dialogue for days, long walk-and-talk takes, and beautiful settings. I could watch a few more of these.

Side note: Tuck it or don't, that half way crap is whack.
