Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★

"If you want love, then this is it. This is real life. It's not perfect but it's real."

Gorgeously shot, brilliantly written, flawlessly directed and perfectly acted by the two leads, Before Midnight doesn't let down in comparison to it's two predecessors and yet it feels as if it takes less of a risk.

Whilst Sunrise was a perfectly paced romance and Sunset was a perfectly directed snippet into a life changing day, Midnight doesn't feel like the grand venture of the original or the technical marvel that was the sequel, which was almost a one-shot movie. That's not to say that Midnight fails, far from it, but it feels like a sequel whereas the other one felt like it's own thing. It's deep and well made, and Hawke's probably the standout, but I was expecting just a smidge more.
