Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★★

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. Every fight, ever harsh word, every beautiful moment they shared pulled me right in and refused to let me go, not that I ever wanted to leave. As with the other two films, I finished this one with a smile on my face. It was nine years between the first two, nine years between the last two, and I wouldn't mind meeting up with Jesse and Celine again in 2022.
