    Before Sunset

    ★★★★★

    Before Sunset is an extremely intimate (if not the most intimate) study of a forbidden love.

    Scenes transition flawlessly between one another as the continuity remains intact almost the entire way through as I noticed only one obvious transition at the 45min mark...

    Before Sunset is a masterpiece as it is able to maintain your undivided attention for a feature film length while also having practically no plot.

    I don't think you will ever find a better Shakespeare adaption than this. Plain & Simple.

    I already saw Joaquin Phoenix as the son of god before this role!

    ★★★★

    A suprisingly excellent example of "chekhov's gun": the principle that every element in a story is relevant and will come into play eventually.

    This came as a surprise to me because 1. it is "a kid's movie" which often lack great writing and 2. Because I thought they must have been very rushed to make a sequel to the popular first instalment but I can happily say, it is clear to me that they took their time to making sure it was just right.
