Richard Dreyfuss plays one of the most pathetic, lovable losers I've ever seen, and gets himself into moments more tense than most thrillers. This is definitely one of the most underrated films of the 80s.
I hope no one thinks that my giving all 3 movies 5 stars is proof of me being to easy on them. I mean, surely there's SOMETHING I could critique, right?
Linklater's Before trilogy is perfect.
Any other film with a fighting couple would have been, well, any other film. But after falling in love with Jesse and Celine in Before Sunrise and cheering for them in Before Sunset, I couldn't help but cry with them in Before Midnight.…
A maddening, infuriating, incredible experience. With a slow start, it gradually builds to surrealistic nightmare that is almost comical in its absurdity, only to constantly pull you back into its frightening reality. A part of me thinks that Bunuel would have loved this. I had no idea what to expect going in, and I would recommend everyone else do the same.
